Parc La Fontaine, Montreal
Assistant Editor Ben Hankey describes a favorite moment in a favorite spot discovered in the lovely Parc La Fontaine, Montreal, Quebec.
  We came into Parc La Fontaine completely exhausted, each of us on a battered bike share cycle climbing from the main drag of Montreal’s Gay Village (imagine a bustling shopping district with innumerable strands of pink Christmas bulbs overhead), huffing and puffing onto Le-Plateau-Mont-Royal. The terrain evened, our muscles relaxed, the wheels turned more effortlessly and we stationed our bikes between the boulevard’s French mansard roofs and a thick canopy of old-growth ash trees. It was a Saturday evening and we were headed through the iconic park on the way to the restaurants of Duluth Street.
