The best things in Montreal are free

There is so much to see and do in Montréal. The best thing is, you don’t need to spend a bundle of cash to have a bundle of fun. The Vertica Resident Services blog team is here to help you discover the best things in Montréal are free!

Grande Bibliothèque

Grande Bibliothèque is much more than a library. There are over 4,000,000 works, including 1,140,000 books, audiobooks, movies, music and more to explore and borrow, but there are also special exhibits, events and art shows to enjoy. The building itself is something that must be experienced. Riding the glass elevator is worth the trip. With over 1300 reading armchairs, this is the perfect place to spend a rainy spring day, or to take a break from the cold when you’re out and about.

Angrignon Park

Angrignon Park is located on 97-hectares of land in the west end of Montreal. This tranquil green space features several kilometres of walking and cross-country ski trails. Or you can simply sit by the long pond and read a book. There are picnic areas, a community garden area and much more to explore. It can be reached by taking the green line westbound on the Metro to the final stop. The trip will take about 30 minutes from The Shaughn.

Jazz Fest

Montréal never needs much of an excuse to throw a party. There are so many events and festivals happening all year long that it can be hard to keep track. One of the most famous festivals Montréal plays host to is the International Festival of Jazz. If you love free outdoor concerts form the jazz world and beyond, this is the festival for you. There are ticketed shows as well, if you feel like spending money, but it’s easy to get by just fine for free during Jazz Fest. This year marks the 40th Edition! The event will run from June 27th to July 6th, 2019.
