Old Port of Montréal
- Parking ($)
Fresh and modern, the Port of Montréal’s Grand Quay (Grand Quai du Port de Montréal) offers updated marine infrastructures alongside unique contemporary spaces designed for the enjoyment of Montrealers, cruise passengers and tourists alike.
The Promenade d’Iberville on the green Grand Quay roof boasts over 24,000 flowering and aromatic plants and an immense wooden terrasse from which to breathe it all in. The beauty of the flora is only matched by the impressive view of Montréal, the Old Port and cruise ships as they sail down the St. Lawrence River.
Come summer, events embellish the port landscape, with marquis tents set up amidst the botanicals on the green roof or on the esplanade. The possibilities are endless, given the ample space and easy access for containers, food trucks, or whatever the event requires.
Passersby can enjoy a prime vantage of the river from Commencement Square, a vast lawn beside the water complete with Adirondack chairs to sit back, relax and watch the world go by.
Marine and history enthusiasts can wile away the hours at The Port Centre and discover the Port's timeline, which is closely linked to the development of Montréal. The whole family can also discover its free and exciting marine exhibition À bon port!
And watch for the observation tower, which will open in 2021.
