The Urban Forest
The Urban Forest is back for an 9th year on Victoria Street –pedestrianized for the occasion– between Sherbrooke Street West and President-Kennedy Avenue.
From May 21 to October 13, 2019
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!
