Update : Event – Public Works Day
Update : May 12
This Sunday, May 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Public Works team welcomes Pointe-Claire residents of all ages to celebrate Public Works Day outside their building at 100 Terra Cotta Avenue.
The day will begin at 10 a.m. with the presentation of the American Public Works Association (APWA) award to the Public Works Department for the virtual programming offered during the 2021 edition of National Public Works Week.
Because the soccer fields in Terra-Cotta Park are under repair, on-site parking will be limited. We invite you to favour cycling, walking or public transportation to get there. If you have to drive, you can park on Saddlewood and Belmont avenues and take the Terra-Cotta park trail. You can also park at the Bob-Birnie Arena and the Aquatic Centre, from where you can take the staircase at the Viburnum entrance and then the path along the upper soccer field which will lead you to the park chalet to get to the location.
In addition to the many activities planned for the day, participants will receive packets of seeds from the horticulture and arboriculture teams for their vegetable garden or for melliferous plants to attract pollinators who play an essential role in our environment
In the event of rain, activities are maintained with the exception of inflatable structures and street marking with chalk.
Come in large numbers!
