Green and urban
With its many parks, its houses of all sizes, its green alleys, its streets lined with mature trees and its coloured commercial corridors, Rosemont has something for everyone. It's not surprising that so many families are choosing to make it their stomping ground.
Feel at home
In the Rosemont neighbourhood, you can find small, welcoming homes, single family dwellings in a row, duplexes and triplexes full of character as well as townhouses surrounded by green space. People feel at home in Rosemont because they know each other. It’s a cosmopolitan neighbourhood built to a human scale.
The soul of a neighbourhood
The shops are never far, schools are accessible, the grocery store is in walking distance, or easily reachable by bus or public transportation, and there's always a park or public space a few steps away. In short, there's no shortage of occasions to walk around and bump into someone you know. What 'Rosemonters' identify with most about their neighbourhood is without a doubt the fact that they've managed to build relationships with both business owners and neighbours.
A place to meet
Rosemont developed at the dawn of the 20th century. Since then, the area hasn't stopped growing and attracting people. Around Masson Street, houses of more than a hundred years have seen generations grow up and families take root. In the corner of the old Angus factories, a mixed neighbourhood of townhouses, condos and accessible housing has risen up over the last few years. Around Molson Street, a whole new resolutely contemporary living environment is in development where homes and businesses sit side-by-side. Along Beaubien Street, passersby stop at patios, discover new shops. In Molson park, children play while their parents discuss the next film that they'll go see in theatres just nearby.
Go play outside!
The true breath of the city, the immense Maisonneuve park, isn't far. At the other end, to the west, the Père-Marquette park constitutes a meeting point for sports lovers, ball players, and - with its future skatepark - skateboarders and rollerbladers. The area abounds with parks where you can play, stroll or relax.
Rosemont is a neighbourhood particularly sought after by young families who want to see their children grow up in a healthy, green and safe environment. You can see new building projects in the neighbourhood by consulting the interactive discovery map on the Habiter Montréal website.
