So, just down the street from where we live is Mont Royal, the mountain on the island of Montreal. It’s surrounded by Parc du Mont-Royal, one of the city’s largest greenspaces. The parc is really nice – people are often playing sports, running, training for cross country skiing, having picnics or walking their dogs. It was especially nice when we visited a few weeks ago when the foliage was at it’s peak! There’s a small man made lake filled with koi fish & sculpture garden too. We hiked up to the Kondiaronk Belvedere to enjoy the view of downtown Montreal with mountains & nature surrounding us in the distance.
