Montreal Released Its Plan To Completely Transform Parc Jean-Drapeau (22 RENDERINGS)

Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante, in collaboration with the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau (SPJD), announced a new plan to completely redesign Parc Jean-Drapeau over the next 10 years.

The city says it intends to preserve the natural landscape of the Montreal park by rehabilitating Place des Nations, enhancing Mount Boullé and creating a 15-kilometre waterfront promenade around the islands.

The plan also includes building a "cosmos footbridge" connecting both islands, complete with a public square and green corridor.

A rendering showing people walking along waterfront paths with the Jacques-Cartier Bridge lit up in the distance calls Jean-Drapeau the "Brooklyn Bridge Park" of Montreal.

The increased green space will mean fewer cars. The number of parking spaces on both islands will be considerably reduced and car traffic will be banned. Only public transit, delivery vehicles and service and maintenance trucks will be allowed on the two islands.

You can get a sense of what it will look like from the renderings below.
