A true garden paradise with an urban forest much in evidence, Saint-Lambert features an enchanting setting and a beautiful place to live where individuals and families can find fulfillment. Thanks to the special character and charm of each of its neighbourhoods, Saint-Lambert is able to offer a choice of lifestyle and style of housing to satisfy all tastes.
Saint-Lambert is a mature city whose land is nearly fully developed, mainly because there is so little vacant land available. Essentially a residential city, dwellings represent 95% of all the buildings on its territory, and 57% of these are single-family dwellings.
A place to have fun
The municipality offers its residents many parks and modern municipal infrastructures (including the new recreation centre built in 2011) that meet the population’s various needs. The wide array of cultural, sports, and community activities and events available make for an enriched living environment.
Cultural life in Saint-Lambert is on par with that of any major centre. In summertime, its parks and downtown core bustle with countless outdoor activities such as shows and concerts. Its library is one of the busiest in Québec, and its centrally located multi-purpose centre hosts exhibitions, shows, receptions, and concerts.
A network of cycling paths links the city to adjoining towns and offers free access to Montreal via Île Notre-Dame.
A place to get involved
Saint-Lambert’s dynamic community life contributes directly to the well-being of the population. Many volunteer organizations complement the work of public and government organizations in the areas of recreation, culture, and social assistance.
A place to shop
Saint-Lambert has more than 500 commercial or professional-service establishments on its territory.
Its main commercial core is its downtown area, located around Victoria Avenue and only a stone’s throw away from the St. Lawrence River. With its unique and personalized charm, the downtown area offers a shopping experience like no other on the South Shore. It also features more than 25 cosmopolitan restaurants, as well as art galleries and distinctive high-end shops.
