In a recent press release, the Mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, “This park will honour its namesake, Mr. Proudfoot, and will give everyone a chance to move. In addition to enhancing the leisure offer, it will be accessible and inclusive, allowing children with special needs of all kinds to enjoy it.”
The name of this new park is Tony-Proudfoot Park. Named after a late resident of Pointe-Claire who was very active for his community. Residents from the city chose the name of the park in February 2019.
The playground will have numerous sections to accommodate different ages, 2 to 5 and 6 to 12. The park is also accessible for those who are in wheelchairs. The entire protective playground surface will consist of poured rubber covered with durable, comfortable, and safe synthetic turf.
The city of Pointe-Claire is really doing a great job with this park, as it will welcome everyone. Picnics, quiet time section for kids that need a break from the noise.
The park is located at the corner of Gendron & Des Frenes Ave.
Delivery Date for this park is Spring 2020.
