Parc du Mont-Royal

Looking Out Over Montreal

To the west of downtown Montreal is Parc du Mont-Royal or Mount Royal Park, a 233 m (764 ft) hill or mountain that in a park designed by Frederick Law Olmstead. On a beautiful Saturday in the fall, it seemed everyone in the city wanted to climb it and spend time at this belvedere and chateau looking out over the city. The last time we were here, you had to walk the switchbacks up to the top. Now, you can climb the steps and greatly hasten your ascent.

      Hello Soheir
      Thank you.
      The book has two pages, one in French and the other in English. They describe the history of the mountain and how Jacques Cartier was the first European on the summit. Thank you for asking.
      Have a wonderful day.
      Cheers

      Thank you, Rob. It is a great place. I agree. Some photos from this trip are going on our walls. There was a fair amount of construction going on there. Cheers!
