Montrealers Are Flocking Back To Parks To Enjoy The Weekend & It Feels So Right (PHOTOS)

Remember other human beings? With the beautiful weather in Montreal this weekend, Montrealers are FINALLY getting a taste of normalcy by flocking back to the city's parks to enjoy the sunshine.

The city's parks saw tons of people living for the weekend — from a safe distance — and it feels SO good to see Montreal come alive again.

Parc Jeanne-Mance was still booming as the sun began to set on Friday evening — with Montrealers wearing dresses and shorts amid 22-degree weather.

The same was true as Montrealers watched the sunset at Parc Jarry. 

On Saturday, Parc-La Fontaine was full of surprises, including a pair of roommates doing something very acrobatic called "needle stars."

Around mid-afternoon on Saturday, the Lachine Canal was full of life both on the path and on the grass.

Some folks even set up tents at Parc René-Lévesque as if they were camping out and, hey, we get it — we wish park hangs on summer-like days could last forever, too.
