The City of Montréal and Les amis de la montagne continue to ensure the highest public health measures to help limit the spread of COVID-19, while maintaining safe access to the mountain’s parklands. Mount Royal Park, in addition to our visitor welcome, gift shop and food and beverages services (take-out menu only), remain open and accessible to visitors wishing to enjoy an outing to the mountain. Note that during peak periods, public authorities reserve the right to limit or close access to parking lots next to Beaver Lake and Smith House.

As Montréal has been designated as a “red zone,” Les amis de la montagne programming must continually adapt to current public health directives. Coming to the mountain remains possible as long as we respect health and safety rules!

Accessing Mount Royal Park

Before heading to the mountain by car, bicycle or public transit, we suggest you always check the condition or accessibility of roads leading to Mount Royal. Road works, sports events or other events might cause delays or street closures. Visit the STM website or Google Maps to organize your trip!
