Ten winter paths in parks and green spaces

The City of Pointe-Claire is pleased to announce the return of groomed winter paths in its parks and green spaces for the 2022-2023 season. New this year, a tenth trail will be available at Hermitage Park. This will expand the network and promote active and safe mobility, while limiting the environmental impact of snow-clearing operations and the spreading of abrasives.

Once a sufficient quantity of snow has accumulated on the ground—20 to 25 centimetres—adapted equipment will be used to groom a walking path in the ten targeted parks and green spaces so that citizens can get around easily.

Winter paths will be groomed at the following sites, in addition to the more than 140 kilometres of sidewalks, the Beaconsfield Golf Club grounds as well as certain trails in Terra-Cotta Natural Park:

  • Alexandre-Bourgeau Park
  • Cedar Park Heights Park
  • Edgewater Park
  • Hermitage Park
  • Kinsmen Park
  • Maples Park
  • Northview Park
  • Stewart Park
  • Terra-Cotta Natural Park (the trail that runs along the soccer fields as well as clearing snow on the stairs leading to Viburnum Avenue)
  • Belmont Park, commonly known as Sunnyside Park (the path that links Parkdale, Sunnyside and Belmont avenues)
