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.

I’ve stayed here twice, and I’ve enjoyed both visits. The location is easily walkable from the subway, and is in the Latin Quarter which has lots of fun cafes, restaurants, and boutiques nearby. In the summer, I also utilized the bixi bikes nearby for transport.
The staff are friendly and very helpful, too. I’ve opted for private rooms both times I’ve visited, and I really love the renovations that they have done recently. There is also free wifi, and the croissants served at breakfast are very tasty.

Je suis allé deux fois, et j’ai apprécié les deux visites. L’emplacement est facilement accessible à pied du métro, et se trouve dans le Quartier Latin qui a beaucoup de cafés amusantes, restaurants et boutiques à proximité. Durant l’été, j’ai aussi utilisé les vélos BIXI à proximité des transports.
Le personnel est amical et très utile, aussi. J’ai opté pour les chambres privées les deux fois où je suis allé, et je l’aime vraiment les rénovations qu’ils ont fait récemment. Il ya aussi un accès wifi gratuit, et les croissants servis au petit déjeuner sont très savoureux.
