Conditions & Work
in Mount Royal Park

Whether you're planning on going skating, snowshoeing or hiking on forest paths, we’ll keep you updated on the latest conditions of the park’s outdoor installations (skating rink, trails, etc.) in any weather or season. We’ll also inform you of any work in progress in or around the park that might affect park entrances or sectors.

Closures & work in progress in and around the park

Before coming to the mountain, whether by car, bicycle or public transit, we recommend that you check the status or accessibility of the roads and paths leading to Mount Royal. Roadwork, sporting events or other activities may cause delays or require road closures.

Visit the STM site before planning your route!

Les amis de la montagne keeps you informed of work done by the City of Montréal in and around Mount Royal Park as well as any closures of park entrances.

The status of closures and work done in Mount Royal Park was updated on June 3, 2022.

The following operations will impact access to and within the park:

  • Tuesday, September 7 to Spring 2022: The Trafalgar Stair is temporarily reopened until September. Some Construction is still expected by the end of October 2022. The serpentine road at the Peel entrance will remain open or partially blocked. This work is intended to replace or improve existing facilities and structures in four sectors of Mount Royal Park. Click here to consult the plan.
  • Monday, August 16 to Spring 2022: excavation work will take place on Olmstead Road in the area of the Chalet Mont-Royal and will hinder access to the Kondiaronk lookout. Two detours are proposed: one for pedestrians (450 m) and the other for bicycles and authorized vehicles, the summit loop (2 km). Only emergency vehicles will be able to get to the Belvedere via the open path on the east side. The chalet will also remain closed, while the outdoor washrooms will remain open to the public. Click here to consult the plan
  • Spring 2021 to Summer 2024: Redevelopment of the intersection of Chemins Remembrance and Côte-des-Neiges will impact access to Mount Royal park throughout the projects many phases. Consult the City of Montréal's description of the project to keep track of impediments to traffic.
