Montreal’s 5 best parks for picnicking
Bread, lettuce, tomato, condiments, Lafleur’s shaved cold cuts, blanket, drinks and a ball: that’s all it takes to have a fantastic afternoon at the park. Ah, yes…you’re also going to need the park!
Parc Jean Drapeau
To enjoy a beach picnic without leaving the island, Plage Jean-Doré at Parc Jean-Drapeau is the perfect place, especially with its inflatable Aquazilla floating play structure, which is sure to help the whole family work up an appetite.
Parc La Fontaine
A little bit of paradise in the heart of the city, its different ponds and varied landscape reminds one a bit of Central Park, only at a smaller scale!
The perfect park for family outings, there’s no shortage of activities here. Soccer pitches, play structures for kids, it’s a Plateau favourite!
Parc du Mont-Royal
From the lookout where you can stop for a bite after walking the many available trails, down to Avenue du Parc with its drummers and soccer enthusiasts, it has something for everyone.
A central fountain, Uniprix Stadium and a wooded area in its south west corner make this a popular spot for an urban getaway.There’s even a doggie run for your four-legged friends!
