Exploring the Many Parks in Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie

Montreal’s Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie borough has plenty going for it. Filled with a collective of urban neighbourhoods, the borough has a lively and diverse culture that makes it a popular choice for young families. 

Those lucky enough to live in Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie are in the heart of Montreal, just steps away from everything they need. A wonderful location is further boosted by a strong sense of community, affordable housing and quiet streets reminiscent of suburban living.

Away from the abundance of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, the attractive neighbourhood offers plenty of relaxed green spaces. The high concentration of parks (55) includes some of the most impressive in Montreal. 

Here is a look into some of the highlights: 

Botanical garden

Montreal’s botanical garden is one of the world’s greatest. There’s a mind-boggling collection of 22,000 plant species and cultivars, 10 exhibition greenhouses and thematic gardens spread out over the site’s 75 hectares. 

The garden is just as well-suited to learning and exploring as it is to a peaceful stroll through its natural beauty.  With so much to see and do, be prepared to spend the best part of a whole day here!

Parc Maisonneuve

Once you’re finished in the botanical garden, why not spend some time in the adjacent Parc Maisonneuve? The 63-hectare park has many sporting activities, including one of the city’s largest ice skating rinks and a municipal golf course to practice your swing on. 

The park is also a go-to spot for hundreds of thousands of Montrealers who visit the park to celebrate annual events such as Québec’s national holiday, Fête Nationale.

Japanese Garden

Transport yourself to Japan in Montreal’s very own Japanese Garden. A garden of complete solace, retreat to the Japanese Garden to explore the large collection of bonsai trees (some 100 years old), soothing ponds and streams, and beautiful sculptures.

To add to the magical experience, the garden guides you through its pathways with light and traditional Japanese music. This is the perfect visit on a peaceful summer’s day.

Pelican Park

Pelican Park is a popular park that is just minutes away from Tak Village, a new condo and townhouse development in Angus. 

The park is a wonderful place to relax, walk and enjoy nature but also has all the necessities to keep the little ones occupied, too! The new playground, sports fields and swimming pool offer plenty and you can even enjoy sledding on the hill in the winter. 

Pere Marquette Park

Pere Marquette Park is one of the borough’s largest public parks. The sport-friendly grounds house an aquatic centre with diving and wading pools, new skate park, basketball court, soccer field, baseball field and skating rink in the winter. 

This is a great place to be active but on those lazy summer days, there’s tons of green space to relax and soak up the sun.
