The Parc de la Louisiane welcome centre is closed for renovations. Renovation work will begin in the summer of 2023 and will be completed in the fall of 2024.
The renovation work includes a complete overhaul of the building, paying particular attention to light, space and universal accessibility. Once renovations are complete, the Parc de la Louisiane welcome centre will be accessible all year long.
The premises will be specially adapted for people with mobility issues. Both main entrances, the washrooms and the hallway will be designed so that visitors can move around without constraint.
The washrooms reserved for park visitors will be non-gendered and accessible from the outside, even when the welcome centre is closed.
Natural light will fill the space thanks to the addition of windows, especially in enlarged areas. The lighting will be carefully designed both inside and outside the welcome centre.
Green outdoor areas
Outdoor facilities will also be renovated, in particular by replacing asphalt and concrete around the welcome centre with permeable materials and plants. Picnic tables that are accessible for people with reduced mobility and bike racks will be added.
A multi-purpose venue
A multifunctional room will be set up for skate changes in winter. This room will also be available for resident meetings. Part of the welcome centre will be reserved for a soccer organization.
There’s no doubt that it will be worth the wait!
