As stipulated in the sustainable development plan adopted by the city of Montreal in 2015, one of Verdun's goals is to enhance natural spaces and to create a pleasant, eco-responsible, and fair neighborhoods... just like our own ELÄÄ project!
Thus, after a few years of public consultation, planning and decontamination of the site, the development of the Verdun beach is underway on the banks of the St. Lawrence River.
You will soon see the umbrellas set up at the Verdun Beach, located just a few steps from the de l’Église metro station and the center of Verdun. It will no longer be necessary to travel several kilometers and cross the bridge to bask in the sun and jump into the water!
Ideal for swimming, non-motorized water sports or a picnic with the family, the facilities of the new Verdun beach will undoubtedly appeal to Montrealers. Here are some photos that were taken during the construction.
The residents of our ELÄÄ project will be able to take advantage of these facilities, which are located within a 20-minute walk!
