Why Rosemont is a great neighbourhood to start a family

If you’re on the hunt for a home and happen to be among the family-minded, Montreal’s Rosemont borough is among the strongest choices out there. Rosemont contains several neighbourhoods, including Petite-Patrie, Nouveau-Rosemont, and the Technopôle Angus, as well as urban villages like Little Italy. While it is a largely residential area, commercial zones such as St. Hubert Plaza and Promenade Masson mean that convenience and quality shopping are located very close by. Located on the East end of the Greater Montreal Area, adjacent to Little Italy and bordered by the vast green spaces of the Botanical Gardens and the Olympic Village, Rosemont is a striking combination of generous green space, convenient access to comprehensive public transportation, and affordable living.

Family-friendly activities—for every member of the family

It’s not surprising that the borough is increasingly popular with young families. The neighbourhood’s many parks are a draw, as are its outdoor swimming pools, three libraries, four hospitals, fitness centres, spas, schools, daycares, community gardens, cafes, bars, and public spaces, including a culture centre. Residents, and families, in particular, choose Rosemont for the sense of tranquility present in its spacious streets. Without having to move to the suburbs, many residents in the area do not feel like they are living in a city environment, and yet Rosemont possesses all the urban conveniences city dwellers seek—particularly if they do not own a car. Strolling through this history-rich neighbourhood, a variety of architectural styles can also be observed.

The iconic Jean-Talon Market is a wonderful place to buy fresh local produce, gorgeous flowers, and a variety of other artisanal products. Maisonneuve Park is ideal for biking and picnicking in the warmer months, and in the wintertime, ice skating is a popular favourite. The variety of outdoors farmer’s markets in the summer are always a fun and wholesome time for the entire family, and Cinéma Beaubien is a predominantly francophone movie theatre offering a diverse roster of unique films worth checking out.
