On my trip to Montréal, Canada, I couldn't miss a trip to Mont Royal. Aside from going up onto the platform from where you have beautiful views of the city and the river, my other goal was to reach the Beaver Lake (although apparently there are no beavers, the name was given because back when it was built, they found beaver dams). However, we were disappointed when we went there because it's under construction! So there is no water, but lots of land ... Still, I've seen pictures that where there is water and it is an ideal place to spend some time chatting on the grass!
