CELEBRATING WINTER IN THE STREET

Wintertime pedestrian streets

Lively pedestrian and shared streets are possible – even at -10° Celsius! Do you enjoy these spaces in your neighbourhood during the wintertime?

Montréal is asserting its winter identity and wants to go even further by experimenting with year-round facilities and winter activities as part of its citywide Pedestrian and Shared Street Program (in French).

Place Shamrock

The city is taking its inspiration from Edmonton and its WinterCity Strategy, and Montrealers can now enjoy colourful meeting places, a pleasant atmosphere created by decorative lighting and inviting facilities designed to maximize winter sunlight. All of this adds a little magic to the harsh winter we’re having this year.

There are activities for everyone: young and old alike can play hockey, take part in festive, community-building activities or simply warm up around the fire.

New projects in 2018

There are activities for everyone: young and old alike can play hockey, take part in festive, community-building activities or simply warm up around the fire more than 40 existing temporary seasonal or pedestrian streets

Les Terrasses Roy

In summer 2018, three new shared and pedestrian street projects will be created: 

Village du vilain sapin

Temporary sugar shack street

Don’t miss the celebrations for the arrival of spring that will be held March 22-25, 2018 at the “Panache et bois rond” urban sugar shack.

Place Wellington in Verdun will become a temporary pedestrian street for the occasion. It’s another great reason to head outside, especially since you can indulge your sweet tooth while enjoying a diverse musical lineup!

 

LABORATOIRE D'INNOVATION

Montréal a remporté en janvier dernier le Prix des collectivités durables 2018 de la Fédération canadienne des municipalités dans la catégorie Transports, pour sa transformation de rues en rues piétonnes. Ce prix récompense les projets novateurs des villes canadiennes en matière de développement durable qui ont le potentiel d’être reproduit ailleurs.
