Seven Places That Will Make You Fall In Love With Rosemont
Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie is one of Montreal’s signature boroughs. Close enough to the downtown core to be easily accessible; with the neighborhood well served by two metro lines, it’s also far removed from the hustle and bustle of the big city. With tree-lined avenues, quaint shops, and several parks, it’s become a favorite for both young professionals and families – with a number of spots that will make you eager to call it home.
The Botanical Garden
Spread out over 190 acres, and featuring 22 thousand plant species, this international attraction will be in your backyard if you move to Rosemont. Check out endangered plant species you won’t be able to see anywhere else, and take in the grounds on your day off. City residents also get free admission to the outdoor gardens. During the summer it’s a wonderful place to soak up a bit of sun or relax under a shady tree with a good book.
Arguably the leading natural history museum in North America, the Insectarium attracts somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 thousand visitors a year. Some of the things you’ll see here are truly one of a kind!
The Japanese Garden
A local collaboration with the government of Japan, if you’re prone to stressful days at work, an hour walking around this tranquil spot is the perfect way to relax. Designed to encourage a feeling of serenity, it’s meant as a place where you can collect your thoughts and clear your mind while appreciating the beauty of the Koi ponds, stone craftsmanship and plant life.
Rosemont’s quickly becoming a prime destination for local foodies, with many of the city’s finest restaurants calling this borough home. There’s something for all tastes, with tons of Vegan-friendly spots like Regine Café, Chez Chose, and La Grand-Mere poule – one of the city’s best brunch spots. It’s also the place to find Poutineville, which is home to – you guessed it – arguably the city’s best poutine, made famous by their signature red wine gravy.
With the young, hip residents making Rosemont one of the city’s trendier neighborhoods, a wide range of shops have moved in to reflect the shifting demographic. Boutique Petite Rebelle is an especially cool one, with women’s clothing from a wide range of local designers!
What’s a neighborhood without a little nightlife? Rosemont has some of Montreal’s coolest bars, including Le Saint-Edouard, with its tin ceiling and cocktail list, or the craft-beer serving Broue Pub Brouhaha. If you’re looking to channel your inner rock star, grab some friends and check out The Small Box Karaoke Bar & Shows – and make any classic tune you can think of your own!
