Locals look forward to the arrival of warm Montreal weekends all winter and spring. And, although we're nowhere near normal times, some outdoor activities are beginning to reopen and resume — including gatherings of a maximum of 10 people (with some restrictions). For the first time in months, there are some things to do outside in Montreal this weekend.\nIn all cases, however, authorities insist that you keep following public health guidelines, stay two meters away from other people, and wear a mask when that's difficult to do.\nBut if you're still staying home, there are also still ways to have some fun.\nAfter our long and harsh winters, it is great to know that the sun is here to stay, and there's even a heatwave on the way.\nSitting outside does so much good for the soul and if you can enjoy the heat, why not do so this weekend?\nIn the coming weeks, there will be even more to do.\nMontreal retail stores with their own entrances from the outside will begin to open on May 25. The city is also preparing to close some streets to traffic to give pedestrians more space to enjoy.\nMuseums and drive-in theatres are reopening at the end of the month.\nBut in the meantime, here's what you can do this weekend!\nSkate, Play Pétanque Or Go Golfing\nNikolai Sorokin | Dreamstime\nWhere: Designated parks and courses around the city are opening for individual use\nWhen: Skateparks and pétanque opened Thursday; municipal golf courses open Saturday\nHere's what you need to know\nGo For A Picnic In The Park\nView this post on Instagram Let's just say that picnic season starts now, ok? 😍 Had a super fun photoshoot earlier this week with @the_wellcommunity .
