Parc La Fontaine

Parc La Fontaine

Parc La Fontaine - Fountain

Parc La Fontaine - Lawn

Parc La Fontaine - Pond


Parc La Fontaine, located in the Le Plateau-Mont-Royal borough, features a number of running options.

The most common loop used by runners is along the perimeter of the park, but there are other interior loops that can add on mileage as well. The flat, smooth paved surface is ideal for faster efforts. There are a few stop lights along the route that must be taken into account.

A large pond in the middle of the park features a water fountain is another option for those who prefer to take in a bit more of scenery that Parc La Fontaine has to offer.

The park's neighborhood offers a lot of things to do after your run including: grabbing a poutine at nearby La Banquise or an evening stroll down Rue Rachel towards St. Denis and St. Laruent for a great evening of dining and drinks.
