Creating Links

This is not a new idea, but definitely one worth repeating….

Our map of Montreal’s Southwest demonstrates the sector’s potential as a wonderful playground for citizens and a home for wildlife.

Cyclists already know the bike paths along the Lachine Canal and the Canal de l’Aqueduc, as well as the magnificent waterfront cycling path running through LaSalle and Verdun.

Photographers enjoy the fauna in Parc des Rapides and Parc Angrignon, and amateur ornithologists delight in the numerous species of birds on the Falaise Saint-Jacques.

The insets show the green belt along the Falaise, the Turcot Nature Park and the Dalle Park between Côte-des-Neiges/Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and the Southwest.

How can these parcels of land be incorporated into a single green belt in Montreal’s Southwest, for the benefit of all residents in Lachine, Saint-Pierre, Côte Saint-Luc, Montreal West, Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, LaSalle, the Southwest and Verdun?

We would love to hear your suggestions!
