Located in the centre of the island of Montréal, the Parc Jarry is a
vast, open space offering a beautiful view of Mount Royal. The park has a number
of recreational sites and playing fields used by Montrealers of all ages and
backgrounds, a daily reminder of how sports and games can bring people closer
together. Some children opt for the park's wading pond, while others fly their
kites over its open fields. Strollers can select from a number of paths, which
lead to a pond and fountain.
Jarry Park has hosted Canada's international tennis opens every year
since 1995, after having previously served as home to the Alouettes football
team and the Expos baseball team.
