Parc Frédéric-Back: A unique metamorphosis

The Parc Frédéric-Back, located within the Complexe environnemental St-Michel, is the most ambitious environmental rehabilitation project ever undertaken in an urban area in North America.

In 2017, this vast green space was launched with the opening of two beautiful new areas: the Eastern Woods and the Parvis Papineau. For the first time, visitors will have access to part of the park’s central area and enjoy all kinds of activities, including outdoor shows.

The loop around the park has also been redesigned. New signage and powerful lighting that make it easier to orient yourself on the site.

As they walk around, visitors will discover many picnic areas and places of interest, particularly works of public art and lookouts, including one that offers a 360-degree view of downtown, Mount Royal and Olympic Stadium.

Another attraction that you don’t want to miss is the specially designed spheres over the biogas collectors that become phosphorescent when the sun goes down! This metropolitan park dedicated to the environment, arts and sports will be complete in 2023. For the program of events, click here

Investment by the city: $26.6 million
