During the summer, the Halte Bellerive in Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve offers a multitude of activities for children and adults alike. With its commanding view of the river, this relaxing space is a popular draw with pedestrians and cyclists.
This project called for the transformation of the section of Rue Bellerive between Rue Baldwin and Rue Des Ormeaux into a public space. As well as act as a destination, this space provides a link between Parc Pierre-Tétreault and Parc de la Promenade-Bellerive.
Through short-term transitional redevelopments and a permanent redevelopment, the Halte Bellerive will offer pedestrians and cyclists of all ages places for relaxation and contemplation, recreation and food services, while respecting and complementing existing activities.
- Develop an attractive and unifying social space between Parc Pierre-Tétreault and Parc de la Promenade-Bellerive that can be used year-round.
- Improve the offer for residents in terms of relaxation, recreation, activities and refreshments, in a harmonious and safe setting accessible to everyone.
- Highlight the proximity to the river and the natural and recreational character of the location.
- Lend dynamism to the neighbourhood and increase the size of the pedestrian space.
