Montreal in the fall is pretty unbe-leaf-able. Seriously, just when we thought that our city couldn't get any more beautiful, fall comes to the city and makes it even more spectacular. Although there are lots of amazing lookout points to see the island, when it comes to autumn, the place to be is right in the middle of the action in one of Montreal's many parks.
Anyone who comes to the city is always impressed by our parks that can make you feel like you're in a tranquil paradise in the middle of our buzzing metropolis.
But Montrealers know that our parks aren't just a thing of beauty. They're a way of life.
They give us the escape that we need from our everyday life, yet make us feel more connected to the city than anywhere else.
In the fall, the bright colours seem to wash over the greenery, but considering how stunning it is, we really don't mind.
The perfect place for a walk in that crisp, fall air.
Or to sit and watch the people pass you by.
However you spend your day in the park, check out these amazing parks in the city that are about to become your new favourite spot this season.

Part of this park's charm is the fountain and the architecture. So the beautiful nature and the stunning buildings blend more perfectly than a see of brightly coloured leaves.
