Major Accessibility Project at St-Charles Park in Dorval
The City of Dorval will soon begin a major project at St-Charles Park, with the aim of offering a new universally accessible playground. The planned development will promote an obstacle-free environment where the entire population, including people with physical and/or mental disabilities, can have fun and socialize in complete freedom and safety.
While several details still need to be confirmed at this point, the concept will emphasize the naturalization of the park by proposing a layout that will preserve existing trees while allowing people of all ages to come into contact with nature, enjoy sensory experiences, and use their global motor skills and fine motor skills.
More specifically, new play equipment and accessible modules will be added, protective surfaces will be installed, and the street furniture and lighting will be updated.
The redevelopment of St-Charles Park, located at 72 St-Charles Avenue, is planned for 2022. In the meantime, those in charge of the project will meet with several citizen groups for consultation purposes and to gather the community’s feedback.
