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.

Traffic

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

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.

2019-06-21 - Re-opening of the parking lot and the community gardens
The contractor has completed the reconstruction of the recreation centre parking lot to improve safety for users. It will reopen on Friday, June 21 at 5 p.m. Some finishing work will take place over the next few weeks, which will occasionally require sections of the parking lot to be close. This work includes the installation of a charging station for electric vehicles as well as of urban furniture.

Please note that the section of the parking lot located on Oak Avenue is still closed and will reopen soon.

A minimum of 24 hours’ notice will be given prior to any closure.

Safety

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.

Dog park

While the spring thaw continues, to preserve the quality of the grass and to allow for some finishing work, the dog park will close on Monday, April 15. The park will reopen as soon as the work is completed and weather conditions permit. 

During this period, dog owners are invited to visit the Seaway Park dog run. See the Dog run page for details. We thank you for your understanding.

2019-07-17 - Dog park reopens 

The dog park will reopen on Thursday, July 18. You can once again let your pet run free in this space. However, occasional closures should be expected in the coming weeks due to the installation of a drinking fountain. We will provide as much advance notice as possible. 

To ensure that the dog park remains pleasant and safe, pet owners are encouraged to respect the rules that can be found on the “Dog runs” page. We thank you for your understanding.

Community gardens

Work on the community gardens are completed.
