Explore Parks and Playgrounds in Montréal
Although the urban landscape may be the first thing to come to mind when envisioning Montréal, it’s still the city built around a mountain. Montréal has many municipal parks and, in recent years, has made more of an effort to set aside specific areas as nature parks. Many of these nature parks are located along the Riviere des Prairie and offer outdoor activities like cycling or picnicking. For a day (or even a weekend) of family fun make your way to the Cap-Saint-Jacques Outdoor Centre, located on the shore of the Deux Montagnes Lake. Take part in activities such as archery, campfires, canoeing or treasure hunts. With Mount Royal as its backdrop, there is no way Montréal can be completely distracted by the city life.
