In between the Insectarium of Montreal and the Olympic Stadium is Maisonneuve Park, a large metropolitan park that offers a lot of fun for sports. Here you will find hiking trails and bike lanes. In winter, the trails are converted into cross-country skiing winding around a giant skating rink out in the open. Far away in the background you can see the silhouette of the Olympic Stadium, an unmistakable landmark of Montreal.
Parking is 12 CA$, regardless of how long you are going to stay. The skating rink is open up to 10PM. A large cabin offers spaces to get changed and leave your shoes: all you have to do is to bring your own skates and enjoy the music on the rink out there.
In the time of the year when snow disappears, Maisonneuve Park offers great running trails and biking lanes.
