Montreal To Get A Floating Camping Ground In 2017

A very cool 375th birthday gift.
Montreal To Get A Floating Camping Ground In 2017

Vincent Leger wants an urban campground in Montreal's Peel Basin

, a floating campsite that is made to look like the Biosphère, to be exact.

The project is being pushed by Leger as part of Montreal's 375th anniversary celebrations in 2017, with the campsite acting as a new hub of outdoor activity, as reported in Journal Métro.

If it happens, there would be a main campsite by the Peel Basin and a floating psuedo-Biosphere addition, both beautifying the otherwise industrial Griffintown.

Dubbed "eco-urban camping" the floating campsite would be an ode to Expo '67 and let nature lovers enjoy the outdoors without having to drive anywhere, and let the rest of us enjoy drinking beer in the woods while remaining in the comfort of the city.
