Parc Maisonneuve - Trail


Situated across the street from Montreal’s Olympic Park, Parc Maisonneuve features a number of historic sights and running options to inspire any runner. Originally constructed as an 18-hole golf course for the 1976 Olympics, the park offers opportunities to run on pavement or grass surfaces.

The most common path is running the periphery of the park which will send you by Montreal’s Botanical Garden (Jardin botanique de Montréal). The garden is open to the public for free in the winter time.

Across the street from the main entrance of the garden, sits the Olympic torch and rings. Every two years during the Olympics, the flame is reignited and makes for an inspirational photo opportunity. While the 400-meter track is no longer present, the Olympic Stadium and a few other venues are available for touring when you’re done with your workout.
