GIVE JOHN LENNON’S PARK A CHANCE

Posted on June 2nd, 2010 by .

When you tire of Zest & the City, take a break. Discover Montreal’s Mont Royal. The sprawling 200-hectare park is a signature space by Frederick Law Olmsted famous for his landscape design of New York’s Central Park . At the top of Peel Street, follow signs for GIVE PEACE A CHANCE. The garden is in memory of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s famed ‘bed-in for peace’ that took place in Montreal 41 years ago. A paved garden walk is marked with ‘Give Peace a Chance’ in many languages. The work is a collaboration between landscape architect Marie-Claude Séguin and artist Linda Covit. Go there. Take a picnic. Take off your shoes! Feel the soft moss in between the paving stones. Give peace a chance.  Picnic ? Go to any of Montreal’s fabulous restos and ask for lunch or dinner ‘to go’. Walk up Peel Street. (Métro Peel) Relax in this amazing space.
