A fun way to make the most of winter in the city!

The Montréal Botanical Garden invites cross-country skiers to enjoy your favourite sport on its three kilometres of groomed cross-country ski trails, naturally! From sunrise to sunset, you can follow the snowy trails that wend through the Arboretum. If you’d like a longer route, the trails connect with the ones in Maisonneuve Park.

Great news: access to the outdoor gardens is free all season long! So come rediscover the Botanical Garden in its winter splendours, while enjoying some active outdoor fun!

A few rules and some practical information:

  • To protect the plants resting beneath the snow, please remain on the trails at all times.
  • Snowshoeing is strictly prohibited anywhere in the Garden, as are ball sports.  
  • There are no ski rentals at the Garden or at Maisonneuve Park; in addition, none of the pavilions are staffed.  
  • For snow conditions, consult the city of Montréal website – click on the Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie borough and go to the cross-country ski conditions page.
  • The Botanical Garden is closed on Mondays until May 14, 2018, except March 5 and April 2.
  • There is a charge for parking.
