One of the best kept secrets of Montréal! In addition to colourful flower beds, the grounds of Saint Joseph’s Oratory offer wide lawns, towering trees, and the exquisite Garden of the Way of the Cross — in sum, a unique place for peace and reflection embracing the north slope of Mount Royal in the heart of the city.
The Stations of the Cross, located to the east of the Basilica, are nestled within a lush, leafy garden, designed by the famous landscape architect Frederick G. Todd.
The sculptor Louis Parent has designed the statues using clean, modern shapes, in his unique style which fits right in with the natural environment.
Art and nature combine to foster a space conducive to meditation.
Composed of wooded areas located on the south-eastern edge of the Oratory, this reserve preserves the integrity and natural character of this wooded area and maintains the biological diversity of the environment.
