Montebello Park Renovations

Montebello Park pavilion renovations start this week

May 4, 2018 – The City is set to begin renovations at the pavilion in Montebello Park.

The renovations, repairing or replacing sections of the pavilion’s railings as well as damaged floorboards, begin this week and will continue throughout most of the spring and summer. The City does not expect a full closure for the pavilion. However, there may be times when the pavilion is temporarily unavailable due to the renovations. Temporary closures will be scheduled around events and rentals already booked for the park.

As of now, the City will no longer be accepting any new rental permit bookings for the pavilion until the renovations are complete. All other areas of the park, including pathways, the gazebo, washrooms, the rose garden and playground equipment will remain open.

Located at the corner of Ontario Street and Lake Street, Montebello Park features more than 1,300 rose bushes and is a gem in Downtown St. Catharines. It was designed in 1887 by Frederick Law Olmstead, the founding father of landscape architecture in the United States, and one of the designers of Central Park in New York City.

Montebello Park is home to a number of events and festivals throughout the year, including concerts, theatre and outdoor movies. Visit for more information about Montebello Park and other green spaces in the Garden City.
