Parc Lafontaine (in English, Lafontaine Park) is a 36-hectare urban park located in Montreal's Plateau Mont-Royal district. Named in honour of Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine, features include two linked ponds with a fountain and waterfalls; the Théâtre de Verdure open-air venue; the Calixa-Lavallée cultural centre, as well as playing fields and tennis courts.

Outdoor swimming pools are a popular attraction during Montreal's hot summer, followed by outdoor ice skating in winter. A children’s zoo ceased operations in 1989. Bike paths run along the park’s western and northern edges.

In winter you can ice skate or play hockey. If you are too cold enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and free wifi in the Chalet in the middle of the park. Excellent Sunday activity. :)

Beautiful place to just lay back, relax and enjoy life. You can sit by the edge of the lake or take advantage of the Bixi stations and get a bike to ride around the park!

The Plateau’s largest green space is one of the best places to have a picnic, people-watch or take in a free outdoor show. It’s also a great place to rest up after a long bike ride.

Parfait pour un petit jogging, une sieste au soleil et au calme, un tour de bixi, un apéro entre amis ! En ce moment venez voir les bébés canetons tout cutes avec leur maman.
