New look for Toe Blake Park

Not exactly the look to which we are accustomed. Gone are the big ash trees (thanks to the emerald ash borer) and Bernice Goldsmith’s memorial bench.

In the fall of 2019, following a court order to solve the pollution of the St. Pierre River running through the golf course, the City of Montreal had to excavate to the Toe Blake collector that runs under the park and empties on Meadowbrook. The goal was to deviate the river’s flow and stop the pollution of the stream caused by crossed connections in Côte Saint-Luc and Montreal West. We understand the measure is temporary, while the crossed connections are located and corrected.

In time, Les Amis will follow up with the Town of Montreal West on a new look for Toe Blake Park.
