geoguide.logos engA brand new app. the 160 year old Mount Royal Cemetery into the digital age!

A new free Mobile App designed for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices is a great way to experience the nature and history of Mount Royal Cemetery, a National Historic Site founded in 1852.

This App offers you a pocket sized tour guide to visit the property at your own pace. Thanks to geolocation (GPS), as you wander in the Cemetery, you will be notified each time you go by one of the 70 points of interest such as famous people’s monuments and rare trees. An interactive map will help you locate the interesting sites while historical information, written and audio, as well as many photographs will appear on your screen.

The application can also be used with non-GPS enabled devices or off-site; you can browse the list of points of interest from any location. The application is completely self-contained and once it is downloaded, no data connection is needed to tour the Cemetery.

This new App entitled “Mount Royal Cemetery Geoguide” is available on the App Store. It is one of the numerous projects of the organization of the Friends of the Mount Royal Cemetery which also offers numerous activities such as guided tours on history, trees and birds.

Reveal the emotions evoked by a magical moment captured in time: from a frozen landscape cloaked in crystals to the fleeting sculptures of a rushing stream in spring, to brilliant summer sunsets and golden autumn colours.

The Friends of the Mount Royal Cemetery once again is inviting artists to roam the grounds of this magnificent garden cemetery located at 1297 Chemin de la Forêt in Outremont to capture the natural beauty and history of this renowned property. Reveal your interpretations of this year’s theme at this unique annual art exhibition and sale.

If you are looking for a unique venue in which to display your favourite works join us in the beautiful and unique setting of the Mount Royal Funeral Complex. You may display six works including one depicting some aspect of the cemetery. Plan to register early for the 13th edition of this popular event and reveal your interpretations of “THE MAGIC OF THE PLACE”.  A qualified jury will select winners based on adherence to the theme, composition, originality and technical ability with the medium of your choice. Prizes will be awarded and with your permission works may be selected for publication by the Friends of the Mount Royal Cemetery.

The Mount Royal Cemetery is one of the oldest rural garden cemeteries in North America and has been an integral part of the Montreal Community since its founding in 1852. The serene landscapes and remnants from the past make it a peaceful place of beauty and reality for visitors, and the abundant flowering shrubs and fruit trees provide a safe haven for small wildlife.

Autumn is the season of striking change. With warm colours, fruit, nuts and cones, not only are the leaves at their most flamboyant, but the fruit of the trees are often at their most striking and most visible. Bean pods, apples, haws, samaras, nuts, catkins and berries abound on such trees of the cemetery as the Ohio buckeye, spindle, ginkgo and several species of maple. Come and enjoy the beauty of the trees at the closing of their cycle.
