The City begins process to acquire Harwood Golf Club
Following the adoption of a resolution authorizing the signing of a promise to purchase part of Lot 1 834 918 and Lot 3 066 845, on March 1st, 2021, the Municipal Council granted permission to the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion to officially begin the process of acquiring the Harwood Golf Club.
Subject to certain conditions, such as the coming into force of Borrowing by-law 1805, the acquisition of the property located on Harwood Road, midway between chemin Daoust and côte Saint-Charles, would allow the preservation of a large green space. With a total area of 196,396.1 m2 (2,113,990 ft2), this land would offer several possibilities in terms of outdoor pursuits and recreational activities for citizens.
"The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has a wide range of parks and green spaces. We have over 50 well-equipped parks, complete with play structures, water-based activities and sports fields, in addition to 4 dog parks. A few years ago, we also acquired the properties formerly owned by Les Pères de Sainte-Croix and Les Frères du Sacré-Coeur. The Harwood Golf property offers us another great opportunity to preserve another green space and share it with our citizens," said Mayor Guy Pilon.
By acquiring the Harwood Golf Club, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion would ensure the natural preservation of another landmark, adding to others such as parc de l’Île Bray (24,480 m2 or 263,500 ft2), the park located at 405 avenue Saint-Charles (21,189 m2 or 228,076 ft2) - formerly the property owned by Les Frères du Sacré-Coeur, and the property formerly owned by Les Pères de Sainte-Croix (47,900 m2 or 515,591 ft2). This type of acquisition, aimed at promoting a harmonious and sustainable living environment, is part of the Strategic Plan for 2020-2025.
