What Montreal's Parc Jean-Drapeau Could Look Like By 2017

Photo cred - Ville de Montreal

Come 2017, Parc Jean-Drapeau is going to like mighty fine. And I mean 90's style "foooiiiiinnnneee," if the picture above is an accurate depiction of the $55 million dollar makeover to be performed upon the area of Île Ste-Hélène.

Posted by the Ville de Montréal official Facebook page, the photo is a representation of what Parc Jean-Drapeau will look like after it has been remodeled, a project announced last July.

While we already heard about the planned waterfront promenade, the construction of a path connecting the St. Laurence to the metro station, the addition of more green spaces, and the overall beautification of Places des Nations, having a visual representation makes the project look quite stunning, and justified in its spending.

Government officials like Denis Coderre and members of Projet Montreal may not be the biggest fans of Parc Jean-Drapeau's makeover, but we sure are. Just think how much more epic going to Piknic will bee, or Osheaga, or just chilling by the water in general. Exactly, it's going to be amazing. 2017 can't come soon enough.

Let's just hope the construction is all done over the winter, so as not to infringe on our summer fun.
