Mount Royal Park
The Mont-Royal Park is one of the most important green spaces of Montreal. It protects the so-called mountain from larger urban developments. The park, created in 1876, is considered to be the oldest protected area of Québec. The park is mostly wooded and was developed by Frederick Law Olmsted, also known for landscaping Central Park in New York.
