Montréal’s southwestern territory is made up of three boroughs: LaSalle, Sud-Ouest and Verdun, which run along the river and surround the Lachine Canal. The area is also home to the popular Griffintown and Little Burgundy neighbourhoods, known for their trendy restaurants, antique shops and art galleries.
Not only does the Southwest have all the amenities you could ever need, it’s also home to Atwater Market—a Montréal institution. Locals flock to this popular public market to find fresh seasonal produce all year round (even if it’s -20 degrees Celsius outside or after an epic snowstorm!).
Bonus: some of the kiosks are located indoors, in one of Montréal’s prettiest public buildings, so you can grab your groceries under shelter if you need a break from the winter weather.
If you’re a fan of nature, you’ll love the Southwest! Located on the banks of the Lachine Canal, the area is surrounded by scenic green spaces. You can walk, bike and even take a kayak ride on the canal if you’re feeling adventurous!
Spanning more than 97 hectares, Angrignon Park offers a ton of family-friendly activities year-round—the perfect place to stretch your legs and watch the seasons change.
