Published May 21, 2020

Rumble The city is getting yet another new park. On Thursday, Mayor Valérie Plante and Robert Beaudry, the executive committee member responsible for housing, real estate strategy, major parks, and Parc Jean-Drapeau "[announced] the official boundaries of the Parc de l'écoterritoire de la falaise," in a press release. The new Montreal park, which will extend from the Saint-Jacques Escarpment south of rue St-Jacques to rue Notre-Dame between the boroughs of CDN-NDG and the Sud-Ouest, "will total nearly 60 hectares" — roughly five times the size of the 10.8-hectare Laurier Park in the Plateau.
