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 done in or around the park that might affect park entrances or sectors.

Closures & Work Done in and around the Park

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.


Trafalgar Stairs and Cedar/Côte-des-Neiges Access

Work began in October 2017, and will end in the fall of 2018.

The City of Montréal is proceeding with the development of a new entrance to Mount Royal Park at the intersection of Cedar Avenue and Côte-des-Neiges Road.

This development project is a continuation of the road geometry modification work carried out by the Service des infrastructures, de la voirie et des transports (SIVT) on Côte-des-Neiges between Cedar Avenue and Upper Trafalgar Street. Once work is completed, which will eliminate the access route at the intersection of Cedar and Côte-des-Neiges, this site will feature a major new entrance to the park and an improved interface between the park and the downtown sector.

The current project area extends from the Cedar/Côte-des-Neiges intersection to the Trafalgar stairs, and approximately 100 m into the park. As detailed in the Mount Royal Protection and Enhancement Plan, this project will improve park accessibility while highlighting views of the river and the city, landscapes, as well as the natural, cultural and historical heritage of Mount Royal.
