Plan directeur des parcs et espaces verts

Adopted in the spring of 2019, the Parks and Green Spaces Master Plan, covering the period 2018-2025, is an essential tool for managers and elected officials to adequately plan investments in existing and future parks. It allows us to take stock of the various parks on the territory, including the recreational and sports facilities that are located there, and to follow their evolution and use by users.

As of today, where does the City stand on the implementation of this Master Plan?

  • Development of Pierre-Mercure Park: Begun in the fall of 2020, the development work
    Pierre Mercure Park is now complete. The design of this park has been thought out to suit both seniors and their grandchildren. Numerous play modules for children aged 0 to 12 have been introduced, as well as benches, rocking benches and picnic tables. In addition, the installation of awnings and free play areas will suit the needs of the various clienteles. The development was also designed to ensure access to the spaces and most of the park's equipment for people with reduced mobility (adapted picnic tables, adapted play module and sidewalks facilitating movement to the various play areas). In total, more than 80 trees have been planted within the park in order to create, in the long term, an important green space for the sector. The opening of this park allows young and old alike to fully enjoy a quality public space!
  • Redevelopment of Lorne-Worsley Park: Started in the summer of 2021, the development of Lorne-Worsley Lorne-Worsley Park is now complete. The work that has been done is as follows: repair of the parking area, installation of playground equipment and street furniture (shelters covering the players' benches, bike racks, play modules and decorative lighting). Due to supply issues, the following street furniture will be installed in spring 2023: benches and picnic tables. The addition of an exercise module within the dog park was also completed in the spring of 2022. Numerous trees were planted, as well as many shrubs and perennials to create a heavily vegetated environment for the area. 
  • Redevelopment of Quinchien Park: The installation of benches covering the daybands was done in the summer of 2022.
  • Redevelopment of Mallette and Pinault Parks: These parks were redeveloped in the summer of 2022. Street furniture (swings, bike racks, fountain) and new play modules were added. Due to supply issues, the following street furniture will be installed in the spring of 2023: benches, picnic tables and a rocking bench at Mallette Park.
