Promenade Jean-Brillant in Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce has become a shared street in order to give pedestrians safety and comfort. The pedestrian experience will be more attractive on this urban promenade that will be made more spacious and welcoming.


Every day, thousands of pedestrians take Rue Jean-Brillant to get to the Côte-des-Neiges metro station, the nearby commercial street of the same name or the Université de Montréal. To improve the pedestrian experience and offer a safe and welcoming space for walking, the project aims to make Rue Jean-Brillant a pedestrian street between Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges and Avenue Decelles, increasing the green space of the area’s only large park and creating a new public place for residents. 


  • Create an urban promenade by expanding the park through a user-friendly, street-accessible design that can be enjoyed year round.
  • Make the street more narrow to give users a new public space that confirms their sense of belonging to the area. 
  • Make the area safer for vulnerable users. 
  • Improve pedestrian space by promoting walking as a priority mode of transportation. 
  • Promote a safe, sustainable and welcoming design on a human scale that can be used all year long.  
  • Make active transportation safer near intersections, institutions, homes and the Parc Jean-Brillant. 

The project’s design concept is still being determined through community consultations. It will become permanent in summer 2022.
