The Urban Forest on Victoria Street – McCord Museum

Outdoor activities

The Urban Forest

Until October 17, 2021, the McCord Museum’s Urban Forest is back for an 11th year offering Montrealers a space for wellness on Victoria Street in the heart downtown. With its street furniture and warm colours, this ephemeral park provides moments of relaxation to visitors and workers in the area so they can make the most of the summer season.

Enjoy outdoor activities and special entertainment on your own, with friends or with family, free of charge at all times. The Museum is counting on everyone to ensure that public health rules are followed.
