Rowboats and Outdoor Games

From June 22 to September 2

This summer, in addition to rowboats, Les Amis de la montagne will also rent outdoor games such as Mölkky and Spikeball.

Rowboats and Outdoor Games

This year, we invite kids and grown-ups alike to rent one of our rowboats and spend an afternoon or two on Beaver Lake. And while you’re here, why not enjoy a game of Mölkky (Finnish bowling), Spikeball, or any of the other games that will be available for rental all summer? 

Visit our Opening Hours and Rates page to plan your visit!

Rowboat Rentals

Whether in a small rowboat for one or two people or a larger one for two to four passengers, have a great time on Beaver Lake and see the park from a different perspective. You can rent the boats for 30-minute periods, but please note that all children aged 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult in the boat throughout the activity.

Outdoor Games

Mölkky (Finnish bowling)

Based on a traditional Finnish throwing game, Mölkky is an outdoor game of skill that continues to grow in popularity and is an interesting alternative to bocce. Easy to learn, geared for people of all ages, played alone or in teams and adapted to all types of terrain, this game has everything to please. Come try it at Mount Royal Park this summer!




Both athletic and fun, Spikeball is a game played in parks across the city. The practice has gained in popularity in recent years. The technique is similar to Volleyball, but uses a round, horizontal net that acts like a trampoline. Spikeball is played two on two and all the way around the net. The rules are easy to learn, regardless of age or skill level. It's guaranteed to be a lot of fun!  This game is available for purchase or rental and will allow you to spend an "active" moment on the mountain.
