This Montreal Park Has An Amazing Fire Blasting Water Fountain

Montreal is home to many incredible public spaces and parks. When summertime rolls around, these public spaces become our second home.

Perfect for an impromptu mid-day picknick when you need a break from the office, for a low-pressure first date, or just for long meandering conversations with your bestie while basking in the summer sun.

Place Jean-Paul-Riopellein the Quartier international de Montréal is a stunning public space. On Viger street and sandwiched between downtown and the Old Port, this is the perfect park to bring a summer date or out-of-town friend. 

The main attraction here: La Joute. La Joute is a public sculptural installation by iconic Quebec artist Jean-Paul Riopelle, a member of the Automatiste movement.

This is not any normal fountain, though. Starting in mid-May, this fountain transforms into an incredible 35-minute smoke and fire show every night.

Starting at 5:30PM, and with the fountain set to "give" six shows every night, this is a great place to pop by before or after a night out downtown or in the Old Port.
