Marie-Ève Garon is a landscape architect with over 10 years of experience in landscape architecture, including expertise in designing urban parks and schoolyards in Quebec. With over 20 school projects to her credit over her career, she is recognized province-wide for her work on improving the quality and diversity of schoolyards through the creation of sustainable and fun play areas that are tailored to each school’s needs.
Keenly aware of current development issues, Marie-Ève comes up with ideas that have earned praise for their innovation. She masters the balance of designing spaces that are inclusive, educational and fun. Her many recent achievements in outdoor classrooms and spaces for learning in nature are a testament to her leadership in this field.
In recent years, Marie-Ève has been involved in a variety of adapted and inclusive playground development projects, including the redevelopment of Albert-Schweitzer Park for the City of St-Bruno-de-Montarville and the schoolyard development project for the Centre de services scolaire des Découvreurs at Madeleine-Bergeron School. In addition, as a certified inspector with the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association, she is familiar with development standards for play areas and playground equipment, enabling her to create safe play spaces that are suited to users. The diversity of projects on which she has worked, which vary in scale and setting, have also allowed her to build a landscape integration and visual analysis portfolio that helps situate projects as appropriately as possible in their host environment.
