Details: Mont Royal and Beaver Lake visit
Overlooking the city of Montréal, Mont Royal boasts breathtaking views from the highest point in the city. Considered to be the oldest protected area in Québec, this large urban park was designed by celebrated landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. Inspired by “the poetic charms of natural scenery,” the park would be his only creation in Canada. Students can experience the public sculptures, paintings and installations, explore Smith House, the Chalet and the Beaver Lake Pavilion, and see a cross originally erected in 1643 to give thanks to God for saving the colony from a flood.
