Closures & Work Done in and around the Park

The status of closures and work done in Mount Royal Park was updated on October 12, 2021.

Les amis de la montagne keeps you informed of work done by the City of Montréal in and around Mount Royal Park as well as any closures of park entrances.

The following operations will impact access to and within the park:

  • Tuesday, September 7 to Winter 2021: Access to the Trafalgar entrance will be closed from September to the end of November. Portions of the pathways will also be closed in the various work zones. The serpentine road at the Peel entrance will remain open or partially blocked. This work is intended to replace or improve existing facilities and structures in four sectors of Mount Royal Park.

  • Monday, August 16 to Spring 2022: excavation work will take place on Olmstead Road in the area of the Chalet Mont-Royal and will hinder access to the Kondiaronk lookout. Two detours are proposed: one for pedestrians (450 m) and the other for bicycles and authorized vehicles, the summit loop (2 km). Only emergency vehicles will be able to get to the Belvedere via the open path on the east side. The chalet will also remain closed, while the outdoor washrooms will remain open to the public. Click here to consult the plan
  • Spring 2021 to Summer 2024: Redevelopment of the intersection of Chemins Remembrance and Côte-des-Neiges will impact access to Mount Royal park throughout the projects many phases. Consult the City of Montréal's description of the project to keep track of impediments to traffic.
