Montréal's Summer of Gardens


With the Mosaïcultures back at the Botanical Garden, Dale Chihuly?s need-to-be-seen blown-glass sculptures at the MMFA, and the city?s profusion of green spaces, we figured a special issue on gardens was in order. From tiny and tucked-away to giant and jaw-dropping, they?re fantastic spots to sit and think?or not?on a lovely summer day.

For more information on Montréal?s activities, visit our website, blog or image gallery. If you have any questions, don?t hesitate to contact us.

Dale Chihuly?s stunning blown-glass sculptures at the MMFA
Must see: Dale Chihuly?s phenomenal blown-glass sculptures on display at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts (until October 20). While marveling at these organically-shaped, nature-inspired and intensely vivid installations, you?ll get why he?s been dubbed modern day Tiffany. Since you?re there, pop over to the Sculpture Garden on Du Musée Avenue, an open-air ode to art that?s excellent for ambling.

Let Guidatour lead you down secret garden paths
There?s nothing like foliage and flowers to stimulate your senses. And Guidatour?s Unknown Parks and Gardens tour of the city?s covert flora does just that. Spanning exquisitely tended 18th-century kitchen gardens to artfully landscaped terrains high atop Mount Royal, the full-day bus tour also includes a stop-off at the Mosaïcultures exhibition.
