5 Activities For Fun Family Time In Montreal

Kids grow up so fast. Between cooking their breakfast, picking up their clothes, and putting them to sleep, they become these mature humans, soon enough leaving the house.

All that you have left are the memories you made together while they grew up. The most profound ones are those you spent time together. The ones you had fun together and bonded as a family.

The best decision you can take is to schedule some time for your family to bond and create ever-lasting memories. Living in a city like Montreal, it is not that hard to find spots to have fun.

Here is a list of seven places you can visit and spend time with your family. 

  1. A visit to Mount Royal Park 

Mount Royal Park opened in 1876, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the New York Central Park creator. Ever since opening, the 200-hectare park has been a Montreal hotspot. 

The park hosts a variety of activities for adults, children, and families. You can engage in eco-friendly activities or register children for Schools & Children Groups. There are day-trip fun activities through all seasons. 

  1. Thrilling rides at La Ronde

Who doesn’t get excited by amusement parks? No one, even, the adults get excited. 

La Ronde is part of the six flags family and is the largest theme park in Quebec. The park hosts over 40 attractions and rides for children and families, a thrilling rollercoaster, live entertainment, special events, and dining options. 

No matter how often you visit it, there is always something fun and exciting to do. 

The amusement park is planning to reopen on May 22, 2021, following the COVID-19 safety guide.

  1. Visit Biodome of Montreal

Unique in the world, the Montreal Biodome brings together five ecosystems from the Americas. Wondering from the Tropical Rainforest to the Laurentian Maple Forest, your family will see and experience nature through educational activities.

You can explore the ecosystems or visit the exhibitions to learn about the environment and the interactions between plants and animals. 

Make sure to bring a pair of binoculars so your kids can see endangered animals when they are not close.

  1. A day at the Barbie Expo

Montreal is the home of the largest barbie exhibition in the world. It shows over 1,000 unique barbies from those inspired by artists such as Van Gogh and Monet to the ones made with the face of celebrities such as Carol Burnett and others. 

The Barbie expo showcases haute couture, dressing barbies in designer brands such as Dior, DKNY, Armani, Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, and many more. 

It is a perfect trip to make if your kids show a passion for fashion. 

  1. A day out on the beach

As the weather is getting warmer, you can head down to Parc Jean-Drapeau for a day at the beach. 

The golden beach has more than 15,000 square meters of the swimming area. It provides enough space for children and grown-ups to have fun.

Kids can enjoy the obstacle course on the water while you can do Stand Up Paddleboard yoga. As a family, you can have fun canoeing, kayaking, or playing beach volleyball. 

Final thoughts

Children grow up so fast. The best gift you can give to them (and yourself) is to spend time with them. To bond as a family and have fun together. A day out in many attractions Montreal offers is all it takes.
