One of the prettiest city parks we have been in. Very clean, safe and beautiful. Designated bike paths. Walked through it every day on way to metro or restaurants and felt safe at all times.

A huge park, the largest in Montreal! It has a beautiful lake with ducks swimming in it and a water fountain in the middle. A very calm and relaxing place to be at any time, specially at night under the stars!

This park was the finish line for the Rock and Roll marathon of Montreal. Beautiful lake. Saw my first white squirrel. Like a mini-Central Park.

I fell in love with this park - so calm and relaxing! We were biking with a friend, and stopped there to rest at the lake. The weather was great, so we sat down on the grass and enjoyed the view.

I didn't find this park worth the time it took to get there. The paths were pretty decrepit and there were a lot of sketchy people about.

One of the best places to relax in Montreal. Nice theater for kids. Nice playground too. You will not be disturbed, as of now, by people trying to sell you all kinds of stuff. A must if you visit or live in Montreal
