Over the past year, Armitage Park located on Oka Road, at the intersection of 26e Avenue, has undergone a real metamorphosis, to say the least. From a green space with lawn bowling grounds, it has grown into an essential park offering attractions for all generations. The new developments now completed and already highly appreciated by the population and were officially inaugurated by the municipal council of the City of Deux-Montagnes last Thursday, June 10th.

“We were impatient to inaugurate this intergenerational park and the 3rd area with water features on the two-Montagnais territory. Seeing the many families treading the ground there since the arrival of good weather, we are happy to note that the nautical themed park is already helping to improve the quality of life of people in the neighborhood, and even elsewhere”, said Denis Martin, mayor of Deux-Montagnes.

With its water games (in operation since the end of last May) and its new play areas for children, including one designed for 2-5 year olds and another for 6-12 year olds, Armitage Park allows families to take full advantage of the site and go on an adventure thanks to the magnificent fun ship made of wood (the first installed in Quebec!).

This park is not only for the little ones. In addition to the lawn bowling grounds, the park now houses a lighted volleyball court and a rest area with shade cloth and deckchairs. There is also an inclusive carousel at Armitage Park, designed for the use of all, regardless of the child’s abilities. The carousel, large enough to accommodate several people, both children and adults, has a seat and handles for comfortable and optimal use of the game which improves depth perception and coordination.
