All The Things You Can Do On Verdun's Pedestrian-Only Promenade Wellington This Summer

After being cooped up all winter, it's time for "DEWORS."

After being cooped up all winter, many of us can't wait to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. Cue DEWORS, which is what Promenade Wellington in Verdun is calling its summer as a pedestrian-only street

Promenade Wellington — between Rue Regina and 6e Avenue — is one of 13 Montreal streets being pedestrianized for the summer season. Rue Wellington became a pedestrian-only street on June 1.

Here's what you can expect on the Well this summer:

  • More than 200 shops
  • 50 restaurants, bars and terrasses
  • Shaded, flowered and teleworking-friendly spaces with Wi-Fi and electricity (official launch on June 14) 
  • The return of OK LÀ, an experimental music and performative cinema festival in the Ethel parking lot (August 6 and 7) 
  • A giant floor mural in collaboration with MU
  • A new layout for the Ru'Well alleyway — perfect for your selfies! (coming early July)
  • An event program respecting sanitary measures in collaboration with the Borough of Verdun and Quai 5160 (more details to come!)
  • Bicycle/pedestrian cohabitation

There's also Verdun Beach just steps away, or you can grab food and have a picnic by the banks of the St-Lawrence River. 

A statement from Promenade Wellington promises three toilets added at the corner of Wellington and De L'Église, more accessibility for people with reduced mobility, hundreds of free parking spaces and a "Tuk Tuk Écobyke" to help people get around.
