New riverside park could include Rivière-des-Mille-Îles beach access

City buys land in Laval-Ouest

(TLN) Laval’s executive-committee has announced that four lots along the Rivière-des-Mille-Îles near the Arthur Sauvé bridge in northwestern Laval are being acquired by the city for the purposes of setting up a new riverside park.

“Protecting natural areas while expanding access to them by citizens helps make Laval a city that is urban in nature,” commented Mayor Marc Demers. “The west of the island will soon be enriched by a magnificent park alongside the river.”

According to the city, the acquisition of the lands will allow the consolidation of lots already owned by Laval in the area to link up the old Riviera beach and the Arthur Sauvé bridge, while allowing for the creation of a roadside halt with possible beach access on the Rivière-des-Mille-Îles. The purchase is costing the city $1.4 million.
