Mount Royal Park is going to get bigger, greener and less car-friendly

Three swaths of land behind the former Royal Victoria Hospital will be absorbed by the park by 2036, the city announced Monday..

Montreal also plans to remove 40 per cent of the 725 parking spots — 290 spaces in all — in the lot adjacent to Smith House in 2024, with the land turned into a green space.

In total, the new green areas will add the equivalent of more than five soccer fields to the park.
