Westmount Summit is the summit of one of the three peaks of Mount Royal (along with Mount Royal proper and Outremont) located in Westmount, Quebec, Canada. Part of the geographical summit is located within the Montreal borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.
McGill University owned the land on Westmount Summit in the late nineteenth century, which it used for a botanical garden. In the early twentieth century, McGill donated the land to the City of Westmount on the condition that it become a bird sanctuary. Today, there are about 180 species of bird on Westmount Summit.
