Location: Westmount
Client: City of Westmount, Quebec

Development Type: Ecological Reserve Restoration
Mandate: Mountain Top Master Plan • Community Program

Project Description
Our essential goal was to safeguard the unique role of the park as an ecological reserve in an urban milieu which contributes to the enrichment of the three summits of Mount Royal in the more global context.

Our land management programme ensures the conservation and restoration of this site as an urban forest, a bird and wild flower sanctuary, and a canine promenade appropriate for passive recreation and contemplation. The park is frequented daily by the community, seasonally by the ornithologists and on weekends by tourists emanating from the "lookout".
