The beach will officially open on Saturday, June 22, at 10 a.m. It will be open 7 days a week, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., until September 2. The beach access is free of charge.
Built with environmental protection and sustainable development in mind, Verdun's urban beach is offering to Montrealers and Verdunites privileged access to the St. Lawrence River and its shores. A concrete path will connect the entrance to the site with the swimming area, thereby making the beach universally accessible. The multi-level landscaping and viewpoints will provide visitors with an opportunity to better enjoy the nearness of the river and a wide variety of recreational experiences, with slides, a climbing wall, hammocks and sandy areas. A rock dike and a sand-filled area surrounded by rockfill in the river will ensure calm water for swimming.
Residents can call the telephone number 514 280- 0789 daily to find out if the beach is open.
Note : pets are not allowed on site. Service animals are permitted when on duty.
The toilets are located near the Arthur-Therrien Park swimming pool.
Located behind the Verdun Auditorium, the beach has excellent public transit access, with the De l’Église metro station nearby as well as two bus lines (routes 37 and 12). It is also accessible by bike along the waterfront bicycle path.
