The Promenade Fleuve-Montagne

A pedestrian walkway that offers Montrealers and visitors the chance to discover Montréal’s emblematic sites.
The Promenade Fleuve-Montagne.

The Promenade Fleuve-Montagne is a pedestrian link between Montréal’s two iconic natural features, the St. Lawrence River and Mount Royal. The 3.8 km path provides the public with the unique experience of being guided through Montreal’s most emblematic sites.

This legacy of the 375th anniversary of Montréal’s founding was designed to improve pedestrians’ safety and comfort and provide a space where people can meet or simply take a break. In a landscaped environment that features works of public art, the promenade showcases a myriad of iconic streets and public spaces.

The Promenade Fleuve-Montagne is for both the public at large and lovers of the arts, history and architecture. It will be a part of everyday life for residents and downtown workers as well as a destination of choice for tourists and families.

As part of the festivities for Montréal’s 375th anniversary, a festive program of events will bring the walkway to life so that residents and tourists can make it their own. A public market, edible landscaping, gourmet food vendors, educational exhibitions, an outdoor library, musical performances and arts/culture are among the activities on the agenda, in close collaboration with walkway partners.
