The Saint-Michel Environmental Complex (CESM-SMEC) offers strange new landscapes to the eye with every step. The pathway leads over the old Miron quarry converted – into a landfill –, and can be toured on foot, by bike or on cross-country skis.
As a result of the mobilization of the public, quarrying came to an end in 1988 and the land was purchased by the City of Montréal. The huge site is currently undergoing major transformation and will become Montréal’s second biggest park by 2020.
Today, the SMEC comprises 5.5 km of pathways and 48 hectares of accessible land. 192 hectares will be accessible to Montrealers by 2020.
Come witness the metamorphosis of the SMEC!
