Info-Works for Lespérance Park
The redevelopment of Lespérance Park begins this fall. The work is planned in two phases:
- Fall 2018: parking lots, community gardens, dog park, micro-soccer fields, development of the arena court and walkways
- Spring 2019: coulée verte, playground and wading pool
For full details, visit the Redevelopment of Lespérance Park page.
The dates indicated are approximate, as certain factors, such as weather, could affect the time required to complete the work.
We understand that work of this scope will bring with it certain inconveniences, such as increased noise and dust in the area, in addition to disruptions to your daily routine. We thank you in advance for your understanding and your patience throughout the work.
We will not close any streets during the work. Construction vehicles will access the construction site from Saint-Charles Avenue only. This is one of the streets the municipality has authorized as a truck route. The vehicles will enter the site via the existing entrance at the intersection of Mercier and Saint-Charles streets.
In this way, traffic impacts will be minimized as much as possible on residential streets.
Parking will continue to be available for people who use the recreation centre until work begins on the parking lots. We will make sure to inform you in advance before they close and recommend alternatives to you.
If you live close by, we therefore invite you to walk or bike in order to free up a few parking places. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
Closing of the recreation centre parking lot
As part of the Lespérance Park redevelopment project, the City will rebuild the recreation centre parking lot (600 Oak Avenue). As a result, starting Tuesday, October 2, it will be completely closed for a period of about three to four weeks. Area residents will receive a door hanger informing them of the situation.
Users of the recreation centre are invited to park their vehicles on Oak Avenue and Lespérance Street. To allow them to park their vehicles on both sides of Oak Avenue, it will become a one-way street between Mercier and Lespérance Streets for the duration of the work. People using the recreation centre will also have access to the parking lot adjacent to the tennis courts, located at the back of the recreation centre and also the railway station parking lot in the evenings and on weekends.
Lastly, if you live nearby, we invite you to walk or take your bike to free up a few spaces. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
When the work requires it, the construction site will be safely fenced off. We will also make sure that trucks and construction vehicles travel at low speeds.
Safety for motorists
For your safety, we advise you to always use caution in the area of the worksite. We also ask you to reduce your speed.
Safety for pedestrians
The City of Saint-Lambert will set up increased surveillance around the worksite. Nevertheless, we strongly encourage parents to talk to their children about the potential dangers associated with such major renovations and to supervise them in the area of the worksite.
The dog park will not be accessible during the work. We invite dog owners to visit the Seaway Park dog run. Visit the Dog run page for more information.
Work on the community gardens will also begin in early October. They will be ready in time for next season!

In the meantime, the City is inviting residents to park their vehicles on Oak Avenue and Lespérance Street.

People who use the recreation centre can also use the parking lot next to the tennis courts, located behind the recreation centre, and also the railway station parking lot in the evenings and on weekends.
