Lafontaine Park is Plateau Mont-Royal’s biggest park. A 40-hectare gem of traditional park landscaping, it includes two linked ponds with a fountain and waterfalls, soccer and baseball fields, beach volleyball, pétanque, a dog park, picnic areas and playgrounds, wading pools, several pieces of memorial statuary and many trees including numerous imposingly huge poplars. The park's Centre culturel Calixa-Lavallée is the site of Art neuf, a school of the arts. The open-air Théâtre de Verdure that offered a summertime program for many years has been closed for two summers awaiting work, but is now expected to reopen in time for summer 2017 and the city’s 375th anniversary. A bike path runs along the park’s western edge, and on the north side if Rachel Street's path. The park is a crossroads of cycling in this part of town, with the Maison des cyclistes, well positioned at the axis of two major bike paths, just outside the park at the corner of Rachel and Brébeuf. The park has a lot of squirrels, including occasional pale champagne quasi-albino ones, but it’s so much a true city park that there are no semi-wild forested areas left and thus no space for bigger wildlife.
