Frédéric-Back Park Inauguration

Frédéric-Back Park Inauguration

Discover the new Frédéric-Back Park at its official opening!

For a whole afternoon, be part of this happening and discover this singular site through eclectic and participatory activities for the whole family. Dive into the history and admire the immensity and the environmental brilliance of this unique transformation! It is the largest environmental rehabilitation project ever undertaken in North America. Former limestone quarry and landfill, Frédéric-Back Park is in its final transformation stage. Its development will be completed in 2023. A colossal task skilfully undertaken by the City of Montréal.
