Mount Royal Park
Canada’s trend of having incredible green parks smack in the center of her cities continues with Montreal. Mount Royal Park spans part of the city and creeps up the mountain that frames part of the cityscape. Montreal dwellers treat the park as an extended backyard: It is packed daily with hikers, joggers, and aimless wanderers. Through the winter months, you can actually cross-country ski the grounds or take advantage of the ice rink (with kids in tow).
