Everyone loves visiting a beautiful garden especially those in Montreal. But let's be honest, if you really want to impress your date, I suggest changing things up a little by bringing them to one of Montreal Rooftop Gardens! Spring has sprung and so have the flowers in Montreal!
Rooftop gardens aren't your typical destination for a date but trust me, they are absolutely beautiful! Not only do you get to admire the beautiful flowers and colours, but also the skyline of Montreal. These gardens aren't only a great destination for a date, but they are also great for our environment.
Most gardens were actually created by the Rooftop Gardens Project in Montreal in an attempt to "deal with increasing urbanisation, pollution, and impoverishment of urban populations" according to their website. So instead of buying your date flowers, bring them to the flowers!
Enjoy the beautiful view from the Hilton Hotel garden rooftop in Montreal. You can either enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the restaurant in the sky while being seated in a beautiful garden surrounded by plants and water! It's romantic and I promise that your date will love it!
Concordia Greenhouse 1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd. W., 13th floor
The Concordia Greenhouse is open year-round as a relaxing place to study, eat, and enjoy the views of Montreal. So, why not grab a coffee at the local Starbucks and have a nice time with your date at the Concordia Greenhouse!
The Rooftop Garden Project joined forces with Cégep du Vieux Montréal Garden Committee in order to create three of the campus’ concrete terraces into gardens. These luscious gardens supply a creative area for professors to hold classes.
You are invited to participate in activities on Mondays from 5pm to 7pm and Wednesdays from 3.30pm tp 5pm. Otherwise, you can visit the garden with the opening hours of the school. So bring your date on a cute study date or for a rooftop picnic!
As a little bonus, why not take a road trip with your date to Toronto! It is actually the winner of the Love the Earth, Plant a Roof contest! It is considered a “Garden in the Sky” and you will forsure sweep your date of their feet!
Starting on June 30, new "large-scale garden installations" will be put up along avenue du Mont-Royal to "provide citizens with a summer experience tinged with slowness and gentle living, right in the heart of the Plateau," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
"With evocative themes such as La Roseraie, Le Jardin nourricier and Le Bosquet des lucioles, relaxation and appropriation zones, meeting points and a program of activities, make up an inspiring and original path for residents and Montrealers," the Société de développement de l'avenue du Mont-Royal said in the release.
While there are a million and one ways to get a workout in during the summer, some can feel rather tedious. But after going to b.cycle's new pop-up rooftop gym, I can easily say that the spinning classes offered there are far from boring.
Not only did I get a sick workout in just 45 minutes, but I also got to see some cool views of the city from the top of Centre Rockland.
The botanical garden's café terrasse has created intriguing summer treats to enjoy while lounging among flora and fauna — rhubarb ice cream, a sea buckthorn slushie — which tastes sort of tangy, tropical and tart — and wild carrots.
A tour of the Japanese Garden offers views of carp and turtles in nearby ponds, along with the Enchanting Botanical Printsexhibition by artist Sandrine de Borman.
The First Nations Garden is offering a photography exhibition, Kuugaaluk: Along the traces of our forefathers, by anthropologist and Inuit Arctic specialist Lisa Qiluqqi Koperqualuk.
The planetarium's Origins exhibit is an interstellar selection of large-format photographs by Olivier Grunewald.
The planetarium is also offering the aurōrae screening, dissecting the aurora borealis from outer space to the Earth's core.
The new dome theatres are also showing a wide variety of films this summer.
At the biodome, the exhibition La preuve par l'image shows a series of photographs that illustrate scientific research of flora and fauna, taken by researchers — some from the insectarium in Montreal.
Every month, the biodome showcases one specific species or environment to discover in its ecosystems — this month, jellyfish are on display.
In July, the biodome will showcase the foreshore, which is the area between the low and high tide, and in August, it'll showcase flatfish.
The It's Time to Act exhibition at the exit of the biodome's ecosystems highlights concrete things that ordinary people, groups, businesses and governments across the world are doing to fight climate change and help the environment.
