King George Park – Park with a view

The park Mount Royal in Montreal is pretty hilly, green and famous and most important it’s visible from almost everywhere in the city. But there are plenty of underdog parks all around Mount Royal that deserve your attention too. Starting from St-Henri and going straight up you arrive in Wesmount and its numerous lovely green spots. King George Park, formally Murray Park, and re-named after the visit of Queen Elizabeth in 1939 is one of them for soon-to-be almost a century.

It’s when you are walking down that you realise how open this park is to the city of Montreal. On its top it’s fairly flat with sport places, but then there is a large pretty steep grass area offering a wonderful view on downtown Montreal, the Saint Lawrence River and the nature out of sight. While coming down from my jogging tour I always make a tiny break to observe and feel the space all around. It always makes me wonder when my next expedition into the wild will take place.
