Soccer, tennis, running, fitness… sports are an important part of Westmount Park. However, some of the concrete training areas are not user-friendly. The soccer field turf is also in poor condition due to poor drainage.
To ensure that the park’s users can continue to play sports safely, it is planned to:
- Redesign and reconfigure the training area with harmonious curves, and include a shaded seating area
- Install an underground retention basin in the Melville Avenue area to collect the water runoff from the soccer field and allow for better drainage
- Install a pump next to this retention basin to reuse the water for irrigation of the soccer field.
The objective of the various developments and improvements is to provide Westmounters and the entire community with a suitable and environmentally responsible setting for the practice of various sports and physical activities.
