Lafontaine Park is Plateau Mont-Royal’s biggest park. A 40-hectare gem of traditional park landscaping, it includes two linked ponds with a fountain and waterfalls, the Théâtre de Verdure open-air venue that offers a summertime program of dance and other shows, the Centre culturel Calixa-Lavallée, soccer and baseball fields, pétanque, a dog park, picnic areas and playgrounds, wading pools, several pieces of memorial statuary and many trees including numerous imposingly huge poplars.

Bike paths run along the park’s western and northern edges. In wintertime a large section of the pond is cleared for skating.

The park has a lot of squirrels, including occasional pale champagne quasi-albino ones, but it’s so much a true city park that there are no semi-wild forested areas left and thus no space for bigger wildlife.

Super clean, friendly staff, and amazing neighbourhood

We came for a music festival.. We were in the heart of bars, bistros, microbreweries and restaurants. The room was smaller but very very clean, the staff was helpful and very pleasant. We were only there for sleeping. We found the bed very comfy. We didn’t have breakfast there as we were out and off to the local restaurants.. It was a little odd the set up, but the price and location (2 blocks from the metro) was perfect. We will be staying here the next time we are in Montreal!!
