Who doesn't love a new addition to our already amazing city? Mayor Valérie Plante has said time and time again that she's committed to making Montreal more green. And, her administration is putting that promise into action by transforming Lachine's Port de Plaisance into a waterfront park that's "accessible to all."
I'm sure this comes as exciting news for many locals because as if there's one thing Montrealers love, it's parks.
By looking at the photos that Plante shared along with her announcement on Twitter, people visiting this new park will be able to go kayaking, tubing, or just sit and take in the views of the water.
The mayor told us "this future park represents a concrete gesture in terms of ecological transition and the fight against climate change, for the pleasure and well-being of the population and future generations."
No official date for the creation of this transformed spot was mentioned in Plante's tweets.
Robert Beaudry, the city councillor of the Ville-Marie borough, expressed his excitement about the project on Twitter saying, "a greener city is a more resilient city."
Valérie Plante seemed to be thrilled to get to share this news with her Twitter followers.
