Why Montréal’s parks and public spaces are a great place to park it
NOTE: As of June 2020, Montréal is moving toward a progressive reopening of businesses and a return to many public activities, while respecting public health guidelines on social distancing and the use of non-medical masks. Readers are encouraged to visit the websites of the businesses and attractions mentioned in this article or to call to verify whether they are open and what their current hours are.
Because many Montrealers don’t have backyards, green and public spaces are a big deal here, especially in the long, languid days of summer. They offer excellent spots to chill, converge, and often take in some fun extras like music, markets and theatre. Read on for where to get more of a Montréal summer’s one-of-a-kind al fresco entertainment.
