Park
“The Chalet is actually not the main attraction, its the 180 degree view of the city. Take Serpentine path , or Camille Houde trail to access the Mont Royal Chalet , the paths along the way will also make you pass by Beaver lake ( how Canadian eh ! ). You can lounge / run / bike here during the summer or have some winter fun on the outdoor ice rink.”

“If you are by car, walk or bike (a bit more challenging), the view of Montreal is amazing on the top. This is a huge park. It's a great place to go for jogging, dog walking, chilling, meeting new people. Tam Tams are on Sunday afternoons during summer. You can go ice skating during winter. Don't worry if you don't have a pair, you can rent some. This is probably where you can get the best view in Montréal.”
