Montreal Parks

One furtive look at the city map will suffice to establish that Montreal is a green city. Just the central area contains several large parks easily accessible by public transportation.

The most central and important of them all is the Mount Royal Park (Parc Mont Royal), planned by the legendary American landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted (whose park planning credits include Central Park in Manhattan and Prospect Park in Brooklyn). The other relatively central park, very popular with 20- and 30-somethings, is La Fontaine Park (Parc Lafontaine). Much smaller but still well worth a visit (since at some point you're bound to visit the city’s historic area, anyway) is the Parc du Bassin-Bonsecours, in Old Montreal.
