Jarry park is my favourite park in Montreal. In winter, it’s possible to go iceskating on the pond or on one of the artificial skating rinks, but it in summer the possibilities are endless.
The park has a nice picnic area around the pond with a fountain in the southeast corner of the park. People gather here with friends to spend the summer night outdoors. During the day, the park is a good spot to go running or to play sports. It has several baseball and soccer fields and a large open space in the middle for any activity you would think of. There is also a free outdoor swimming pool that opens in summer, and in August, crowds head down for the annual Rogers cup, Canada’s largest tennis event. If you don’t manage to get tickets, you can always follow the game on the screens set up outside of the building.
Finally, there is free Wi-Fi available in the park, around the pond.
