MONTREAL AND ITS PARKS

Take part in 5 original guided tours, from August 5 to October 1, 2023

This year, Héritage Montréal invites you to explore five Montreal parks and their surroundings.

In the company of our volunteer guides, discover the impact of the introduction of parks on a neighbourhood, its architecture and its development or how, on the other hand, existing neighbourhoods influenced the design of these green spaces.

Parks first emerged in Montreal as a response to the city’s extensive industrialization at the end of the 19th century. Unlike the places and public squares that had been part of the urban fabric since the 18th century, parks and playgrounds were active places, designed to be used by the residents of the surrounding neighbourhoods.

  • Tour #1: Jeanne-Mance Park and its surroundings
  • Tour #2: Morgan Park and its neighborhood
  • Tour #3: Outremont and its parks
  • Tour #4: Beaudet Park and Vieux Saint-Laurent
  • Tour #5: Jarry Park and its neighbourhood

Find the details of each circuit at the bottom of this page.
