Feeling cooped up after a long cold holiday season indoors? It's time to get outside and experience the best green that Montreal has to offer! Between work and school and downtown bars you may feel like Montreal is just buildings and subways, but it's also home to some peaceful pockets of nature!
Parc Laurier- Metro Laurier
If you work or study downtown, then Parc Laurier is probably only minutes away by public transportation! Take advantage of its fantastic location. All seasons of the year, the park has something beautiful to offer!
Parc Jean-Drapeau- Metro Jean-Drapeau
Parc Jean-Drapeau is a beautiful park in the East part of Montreal. It actually consists of two islands: Saint Helen's and Notre Dame. If you've been to the Osheaga music festival or the amusement park La Ronde, then you've been to Jean-Drapeau!
