Urban Forest of Montreal

Urban Forest


The McCord Museum Urban Forest is a temporary summer park created on a pedestrian street in Montreal. Fake trees are made with bright coloured paper stripes and fake lawn patches are built with matching carpet. Color orange is in this year. Food trucks and free musical program during lunch hour and Wednesday evenings add to the outdoor experience.

Then, I realized that there was no street lamps lighting the stairway up to the Lookout, and I did not bring a flash light. So I quickly packed up my camera gears and started my descend back to the city. I rushed down the long flight of stairs, and barely made it out of Mt. Royal Park before the twilight faded into total darkness ….
