May: Mount Royal Month is a celebration of the mountain. Les amis de la montagne and its partners invite you to rekindle ties with Mount Royal, take part in its conservation and renew your involvement in the preservation of the exceptional greenspace we enjoy collectively at the heart of Montreal.

This year is Mount Royal Park’s 140 years anniversary! Enjoy our full programme of activities held under the theme of Landscapes, Views and Perspectives... Come celebrate!

Let any man ask himself whether the value of such views as the grandest the mountain offers, is greater when they are made distinct spectacles or when they are enjoyed as successive incidents of a sustained landscape poem, to each of which the mind is gradually and sweetly led up, and from which it is gradually and sweetly led away, so that they become a part of a consistent experience.
- Frederick Law Olmsted, Landscape Architect and Designer of Mount Royal Park
