Synopsis of Autour de la montagne

Sunday, february 4th 2024, from 10 a.m.

“Around 1875, the notables of Montreal were outraged to witness the wild felling of trees on Mount Royal. It was then that we decided to create a huge park to safeguard this majestic mountain. Montreal hires American landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, creator of New York’s Central Park. Anglophones and French speakers built their main institutions, universities and hospitals, as well as St. Joseph’s Oratory, around the mountain.” Free translation of the synopsis from Paul Carvalho’s website.
