Widening of the Verdun Shorline

This recent map of Verdun gives you an idea of the widening of the shoreline along the river. The shaded area is the added portion wich was created by adding earth excavated from the Verdun Metro. This has permitted the creation of  the following 7 parks along the shorline:

George O'Reily Parc

Beatty Park

Woodland Park

Archie Wilcox Park

Desmarchais Park

Richard Park

Arthur Therrien Park

One of our members (SHGV) has counted 43 parks in Verdun including Nun's Island.
