Your park is getting a makeover!

From July 7 to September 18, 2015, there will be major works on the Parkway on the first six kilometres in the St-Jean-des-Piles sector. During this period, traffic will be alternating and works will be suspended every weekend.

Once completed, the refurbishment work on the Parkway will offer a contemplative and safe experience for visitors, who will be able to enjoy magnificent views and ease of circulation on the Park’s main artery.
