Jarry Park is a beautiful place to escape the bustle of the city any time of the year. The 89 acre park offers a wide variety of sporting facilities, but is also a great place to just hang out and relax or enjoy a stroll.
Jarry Park is well know to baseball fans; its stadium was home to Canada's first Major League Baseball team, the Montreal Expos, for 7 years from 1969 to 1976. The park features a small man-made lake containing a large water fountain that creates a focal point and is especially beautiful when it is lit up at night. The water feature, which is popular with ducks and other waterfowl, is bordered with picturesque landscaping including weeping willow trees and perennial gardens.
Jarry park boasts many sports facilities including multiple baseball diamonds, tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer fields, cricket fields, and a popular skateboard park. Even if you don't want to participate in some of these activities, they can all be fun to watch. It is amazing to see some of the stunts the kids in park pull off with their skateboards and bikes. The park is also a popular spot for flying kites. During the winter months the man-made lake is also enjoyed by ice skaters and the park paths are used for cross country skiing.

Attended a tennis match and lucked out with seats situated right underneath a little overhang which sheltered us from the little bit of rain without having to take out an umbrella. The view of the court was also spot on. Nice enough park that is well kept and appears to be well used.
