Development concepts in line with residents’ needs and the identity of Westmount Park

As part of its master plan for parks and green spaces, the City of Westmount hired our multidisciplinary team to rethink Westmount Park, a 100-year-old, 10-hectare park redesigned in 1912 in the style of Frederick Law Olmsted – the landscape architect who designed Mount Royal Park and New York's Central Park.

As part of the protection and enhancement plan, Stantec’s mandate included urban analysis, a large-scale participation process and development of a concept plan. Our team surveyed residents to identify features to be kept or modified and to gauge users' satisfaction with the park's facilities. Based on the urban analysis and the participation process, our Landscape Architecture and Urban Design team came up with development concepts in line with users’ needs and the park's identity.

Among other things, our team proposed an integrated runoff management plan, redevelopment of walkways and the bike path, renaturalization of the pond, revitalization of leisure spaces and play structures, renovation of the municipal heritage buildings and upgrading of technical infrastructure.
