The City buys 3.3 hectares of woodland in eastern Montreal

The City of Montreal is buying 3.3 hectares of wooded land for $ 5.4 million in the east of the island, which will remain a green space rather than being used for real estate development.

The field, as large as about five soccer fields, is located north of Boulevard Perras, between Boulevard Saint-Jean-Baptiste and 86e Avenue.

“By acquiring this green space in eastern Montreal, the City is giving itself the necessary means to ensure sound management of this forest and thus ensure its sustainability for future generations,” said Robert Beaudry, head of large parks at the committee. city ​​executive.

“Until recently, real estate developers wanted to acquire this land for residential development and we have seized a unique opportunity to preserve this wooded area,” added Caroline Bourgeois, mayor of the Rivière-des-Prairies borough – Pointe-aux-Trembles.

The land is linked to Pinel stream, which is of ecological interest. “Pinel Creek is the second major inland waterway in the eastern ecoterritory,” said Bourgeois.
