The large Parc Maisonneuve is known for hosting major gatherings, for its sprawling green spaces conducive to relaxation, and for the sheep that “mow” its lawns.
The large Parc Maisonneuve offers a variety of activities year-round, including cross-country and skating step skiing, sliding, and ice skating on a rink with a view of the Olympic Stadium’s Montréal Tower. Visitors can use the park’s chalet to warm up. The skating rink is illuminated during the evening.
In summer, train on the bike and inline skating path. If you listen carefully during your picnic, you might hear the melodious vireo, a tiny bird known for its varied, continuous song.
Redesign of the welcome area of the Insectarium, including the entrance (ongoing until winter 2022)
Two new buildings are being built and major landscaping design work is underway. The sequence of work will be such that the Insectarium will be able to reopen at the end of the summer.
Trails and access to P2 parking will be maintained. The north sector of the P2 parking area will be restricted during construction.
