Montréal’s Old Port is a 2.5 km (1.5 mile) long recreational park perfect for many outdoor activities. In the summer you will find people jogging, in-line skating, cycling and walking the promenades. You can also go on excursions and cruises around the Old Port area, or the more adventurous traveler may like to try rafting or jet-boating the Lachine rapids on the St. Lawrence River. In winter, you can skate on the outdoor rink to the beats of the DJ on Ice, or learn to make an igloo during Igloofest. Other events include snowboarding contests and bicycle couriers facing off on ice.
In the summer, Mount Royal Park is a beautiful place to go jogging or biking. The wooded trails winding up the mountain are serene and secluded, with benches for resting or admiring the many birds and plants in the area. The park at the bottom of the mountain is a lively place where people spread out in the grass to relax, have a picnic, or pick up a friendly game of soccer. In winter Mount Royal Park is a popular location for cross-country skiing, skating and tobogganing.
