Jarry Park is an urban park in the Villeray neighbourhood of Montreal. It is located just north of Rosemont and Little Italy from Jean-Talon, Villeray encompasses quite a few commercial roads: Jean-Talon, St-Hubert, St-Denis, Castelnau, Villeray and Jarry. This neighbourhood hosts special events and activities all year round!
During the cold winter months, Jarry Park turns into a winter wonderland where kids and parents can go snowshoeing, tobogganing, and build snowmen. At night, the lights shine down on the ice rink, where people can enjoy skating with the long view over Mount Royal, giving a sense of openness. Once the spring thaw arrives, the skates come off and the cleats go on, where people can play in soccer fields, have a turn at cricket, softball, and basketball or go for a swim. Some more relaxing alternatives include a walk or jog along the lake or spending the afternoon under the gazebo.
