Mount Royal Park / Parc du Mont Royal: A Montreal Parks Profile

Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect behind New York City's Central Park, is also responsible for designing Montreal's best known -and with the city of Montreal claiming almost five million visitors a year, it's the most frequented- green space in the city.

It's called Mount Royal Park, or Parc Mont-Royal, and its 190 hectares (470 acres) offer some of the city's most stunning skyline views atop Mont-Royal's three peaks, the highest of which rises a modest 233 metres (764 feet) above sea level.

One of those three peaks belongs to Summit Park.

A visitor's must-see and a popular local treasure, Mount Royal Park is packed with free or affordable outdoor sports and activities for all ages, especially in winter months. And the grounds offer a few history lessons too.
