A leisurely stroll in LaSalle’s Parc de l’Aqueduc: A magnificent view of the river

Montrealers will enjoy a commanding view of the St. Lawrence River, with the construction of a large lookout at Parc de l’Aqueduc in 2017.

This vast green space, which is already popular with walkers and cyclists, runs along boulevard LaSalle at the mouth of the Canal de l’Aqueduc on Quenneville Bay.

A pedestrian path featuring rest areas and gathering spaces will be developed along the shore, with picnic tables and bicycle stands. The project also calls for improving the bicycle path and planting trees.

The Canal de l’aqueduc spans eight kilometres across the boroughs of LaSalle, Verdun and Lachine. As far back as 1856 it supplied Montrealers with drinking water. The Atwater filtration plant was subsequently built upstream, and the canal was backfilled and transformed into a park.

This project is receiving financial support from the Ville de Montréal and the LaSalle borough.
Investment by the city: $1.5 million
