THE URBAN FOREST

The Urban Forest is back for a 7th year on Victoria Street -pedestrianized for the occasion- between Sherbrooke Street West and President-Kennedy Avenue. The concept takes on the colors of Expo 67, with a gradient of reds inspired by the 1960s.

Thanks to its urban furnishings, its public piano and the food trucks that will regale more than one visitor at lunchtime, the Urban Forest will without a doubt be the ideal place to kick back and relax in the heart of downtown Montreal!
