“This initiative is a way to define this flourishing neighbourhood and allows our whole community to participate and offer their creative ideas for this new public space. Everyone is invited to take part in this contest and share their ideas,” stated the mayor of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere.
The Greenwich neighbourhood park is located in a natural space at the corner of Gendron and Des Frênes Avenues. The park will also be accessible using paths from Alston Avenue. The development of the park, which is planned for 2019, will also include playgrounds, rest areas, a hiking trail, and a natural space.
Participation criteria and prizes to be won
All proposals received will be evaluated using specific criteria. In addition to being original, the winning proposal must have a significant connection to the area, the community, or the history of the neighbourhood or the City.
Anyone interested in participating must send their suggestion, along with a brief explanation, to firstname.lastname@example.org. The contest ends on February 1.
Internet users are also invited to share their ideas on Twitter using #nameapark.
The person who submits the winning suggestion and one randomly selected participant will win prizes that promote the local economy.
