Parcours Gouin: A net zero energy reception pavilion

Cyclists, pedestrians and outdoor enthusiasts can tell you: the Parcours Gouin is a little piece of the country in the big city.

Green spaces, bike path, breathtaking views of the Rivière des Prairies ... And a brand new welcoming pavilion open year round! Located a few minutes walk from the Henri-Bourassa metro station, facing Park Stanley Avenue, the building is powered by solar panels, which fulfills all its energy needs (zero energy consumption, called CENZ). A first for the City whos wishes to achieve LEED-Gold certification.

A pedestrian walkway was built between the reception pavilion and the river. Eventually, the four parks along the Rivière des Prairies will be redesigned and embellished, integrating new observation points and safe access to the river. Another great opportunity to reconnect with the banks!

This project is receiving financial support from the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough, the Ville de Montréal and Hydro-Québec.
Investment by the city: $3.7 million
