Let’s dream about our Grand parc de l’Ouest

The Grand parc de l'Ouest is a concrete project aiming to create a Montréal 2030 that will have achieved its ecological transition with its entire population onboard. Having a surface area of more than 3,000 hectares (30 km²), the park has the potential to become Canada’s largest municipal park. It is an ambitious collective project that confirms the city’s will to protect natural environments and to preserve biodiversity. In the context of an ecological transition, the durability of our ecosystems contributes to Montréal’s increased resilience in facing climate change.

The park offers new points of contact with nature and includes all five nature parks of Montréal’s West Island: Anse-à-l'Orme, Bois-de-l'Île-Bizard, Parc agricole du Bois-de-la-Roche, Cap-Saint-Jacques and Rapides-du-Cheval-Blanc, in addition to various areas of interest located in boroughs or related municipalities.

    The city has unveiled, on June 16, the report from its public consultation held during the spring and summer of 2020, regarding the L’Île-Bizard man-made landscape.

    The majority of participants and groups who have voiced their opinion were in favour of the man-made landscape project, and have made comments and recommendations meant to improve the conservation plan. Among the recommendations, what stood out was the importance of improved communication and cooperation with the population, as part of this innovative project.
