With 17 degrees Celsius, it was an exceptionally (read: freakishly abnormal!!) hot weekend in November. I’m talking T-shirts and shorts kinda weather. Montrealers know that winter can kick their doors in any minute now, so I wanted to take advantage of the warm weather before it’s too late.
I checked the map and looked for a place I hadn’t explored before. My eye fell on Angrignon Park, a 97-hectare greenspace in the South-West borough. I had never visited that park before because it’s on the other side of town from Little Italy, the neighborhood I live in. Also, I have plenty of parks in my area. But what the heck?! I felt crazy that day, so I hopped on the metro and got off at Angrignon metro station at the end of the green line. Living on the edge!
The metro exit conveniently leads you into the park, so you can’t miss it. The many trees give it away as well. Although most trees had already turned brown, the park still oozed a pleasant fall vibe. There were many people enjoying the park on what might be the last warm weekend. Some were having a BBQ, others were chilling alongside the water with a book. I was pleasantly surprised by the park’s beauty and will definitely try to come back in the summer.
