Mont Bellevue is a peak that rises to 333m situated in a public park located in the borough of Mont-Bellevue in Sherbrooke, Quebec. The park also covers Mont Bellevue's parent peak, Mont John-S.-Bourque (elevation: 365m), as well as 200 hectares of land, 30 kilometers of trails, and several different types of ecosystems. Claiming 20% of the total park land, it is the largest park in Sherbrooke.EtymologyBelle vue translates to "beautiful view" in English. The mountain, its park, and the borough in which it lies are named after "the magnificent landscape one discovers at its summit."HistoryThe Université de Sherbrooke, built in 1954, originally used the land for sports, recreation, education, and research. In 1959, the City of Sherbrooke constructed the first ski lift on the mountain, signaling the beginning of the development of Mont Bellevue for public recreational purposes. Between 1959 and 1975, the city reserved 45 hectares of land for alpine skiing, tennis, archery, and various trails.In 1976, the City of Sherbrooke undertook park management and maintenance. To this day, the City of Sherbrooke continues to improve the park with consideration for the environment through the Regroupement du Mont Bellevue organization.In August 2013, Mont Bellevue was one of the venues for the Canada Games. In preparation for the event, the Club de vélo de montagne de Sherbrooke was granted CA $300,000 for the improvement of the park's mountain bike course.With our world travel planner, Sherbrooke attractions like Parc du Mont-Bellevue can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Parc du Mont-Bellevue reviews
Great place to escape the hustle and bustle of town without having to drive. They have beautiful walking paths and bike trails in the summer and the ski hill in the winter is great.

If you want a quiet walk outside, with your dog, this is the place to go. Different paths for different people. Love going there for my quiet times, before going to work.
