Montreal is getting a new "urban forest" park at Quartier des Spectacles
/ Ville de Montréal - Arrondissement de Ville-Marie

The Quartier des Spectacles is getting a new urban forest park as part of the International Landscape Art Competition. The park will be built on “terrain no 066,” which occupies the space between de Maisonneuve and President-Kennedy, between Bleury and Jeanne-Mance.

Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante made the announcement on Wednesday and congratulated the landscape architecture and urban design firm WAA Montreal who designed the project.

The press release describes the new space as "a public park with nearly 50% more greenery.”

The budget for the development of the park is estimated to cost $8.5-million, and its inauguration is scheduled for 2024.
