The Mount Royal is the sight of one of Montreal's largest open spaces. The mountain (really, just a hill) is part of an ancient volcanic complex that became extinct millions of years ago. The park was designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted, who also did New York's Central Park, although his design was never completed. The park has two Belvederes, the more prominent one is Kondiaronk. The park also has a vast collection of sculpture statues. There is a small ski-slope here in the winter. Beaver Lake (man-made) is another focal point of the park, which hosts numerous art, sport, tourist, athletic and cultural activities.
