La Fontaine Park, Montreal

4.5
#8 of 39 in Parks in Montreal
Formerly a large military training area, La Fontaine Park offers peace and quiet if you want to spend the day outdoors. At 34 ha (84 ac), the Montreal park often gets compared to New York's Central Park for its beauty and nature. Go on a picnic or attend a show at the local open-air theater. Admire some of the famous monuments, including one dedicated to the first Canadian prime minister, after whom the park was named. In summer, take a dip in the outdoor swimming pools, and go skating for free during winter. Use our Montreal trip app to add La Fontaine Park and other attractions to your Montreal vacation plans.

  • That park really has some views. I must confess that even after 18 months that I visited it I can't stop thinking about it. I know that many would say that Parc La Fontaine is like any other park but for me is really special. I would love to spend every second of my weekend reading alongside the small pond within it. God i miss Montreal
  • We stopped by just to skate, and were not disappointed! Deliciously thick and stable ice, ambient lighting, and just the right amount of people out. Located nicely. Great spot to hang out!
