8 Incredible Rooftop Gardens You Can Actually Visit In Montreal

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!
