Mount-Royal Park one of Montreal’s largest green spaces. From the top of Mount-Royal, you will get impressive views of downtown Montreal and the surrounding area. The large cross at the top of the mountain, which is one of the premiere attractions at the park, was erected in 1924 by the St. John the Baptist Society. The park includes a bandstand and Beaver Lake. Park stands in the middle of the city, is an oasis of green spaces and a peaceful haven for the citizens. It is the first place they think of going when they want to really get a taste of fresh air without leaving the city.
A lookout at the top offers a panoramic view of the whole city.
