My favourite part about our city during the summer has to be watching Montreal's many beautiful parks come to life. Throughout the city, there are a ton of breathtaking spots that make ideal settings for a little picnic. And now that summer is here, it's as though eating in the grass is all us locals want to do.\nSome of the parks on this list are classic Montreal spots, while other places are a little more "low-key."\nBut, one thing is similar to all of them: they're ideal for a little picnic with yourself or with a group of friends.\nFrom small and almost hidden parks to big and popular spaces, you will have a picture-perfect picnic at each of the following locations.\nAll of the following parks have a unique charm and each of the parks should be respected.\nAll I ask is that you make sure that you pick up after yourself and don't leave your trash lying around.\nWe spend enough time indoors during the winter.\nSo, if you're looking to get outside and take advantage of summer, go pack some snacks, grab a bottle of wine, and go enjoy one of the many fabulous parks our city has to offer.\nAngrignon Park\nWhere: 3400, blvd.
