On an absolutely stunning day, we decided to walk along the Port of Old Montreal. I posted about old Montreal here and here. It is a spectacular walk or if you want, a bike ride along the water. A place where summer activity is plenty, and a picnic is called for. If you are visiting Montreal, this is probably one of the nicest places to tour around and spend a whole day with children, especially if you visit in August.
We cross the tracks, which are still used today.
The first thing you notice is one of many bathrooms all along the paths near the water, pretty important when you are with a child!
There is a fabulous small playground, which gets pretty busy in the afternoon.
Paddle boat rentals!
Turning left for a loop around the clock tower.
Near the marina there is a bar/restaurant, which is attached to the man-made beach. It is such a genius idea. It costs $6 per adult. Not kid friendly, as there isn’t anything to do but have a cocktail and read.
As you follow the paths which are pedestrian and bike friendly, you see green spaces and picnic areas everywhere.
To the right, a gated off area for a concert.
A view of downtown Montreal.
You can’t walk around without stopping to have a drink!
A spa in an old boat on the water – how cool is that!
Crossing the tracks again.
Well worth the trek when you visit Montreal.
