Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante made the announcement Wednesday afternoon.

Therefore, the City of Montreal has indicated that by 2029, the equivalent of three football fields, or 18,000 square meters of green space, will be added to Mount Royal Park. By the same token, Mount Royal Park will cease to be used as a transit route to reinforce its status as a destination.

The current belvedere will be transformed into a park space to highlight the view, and a brand new belvedere will be added at the highest point of the trail.

Cars can still access Mont-Royal by car via Remembrance Road.

The two parking lots located at Lac des Castors and Maison Smith are accessible, with a large number of spaces dedicated to families and people with reduced mobility. The STM will, in the long term, improve its service to ensure faster and more efficient access to the mountain.

“The mountain will no longer be a crossroads, but an international destination, accessible to all visitors, on foot, by bike or by car,” says Valerie Plante.
