Keys to History

A few years after the official opening of Mount Royal Park, in 1876, a tobogganing slide was built in the centre of the mountain. This slide was for a long time the meeting place for the members of the Toboggan and Ski Club, while Montrealers living in the east end of the city made do with sledding or tobogganing on the slope on their side of the mountain.
