Les amis de la montagne is celebrating the arrival of spring on the mountain! Young and old are invited to Mount Royal to discover, explore and enjoy this majestic green space. Inaugurated on May 24, 1876, Mount Royal Park is the perfect place to enjoy the tranquility of nature in the middle of the city.

Start Spring on the Right Foot

What better way to enjoy the warmer weather than to go on a nature walk! Come join us to discover the mountain’s three summits or on a walk from the top of Mount Royal to the top of Place Ville Marie. Incredible views guaranteed!

In the mood for some picture taking? Head to the mountain for the 3 Summit Challenge.

And if you feel like taking it easy on a Sunday afternoon, hop on the No. 11 bus for an informative trip to the mountain! A guide from Les amis de la montagne will fill you in on Mount Royal’s history, sights and trails along the way.
