Shoreline Stabilization: Nautical Centre Not Accessible During Work

Tuesday, 8 October, 2019

Châteauguay, October 8 2019 – As part of the shoreline revitalization work planned at the nautical centre (540 D’Youville Blvd.), the Ville de Châteauguay wishes to inform users that the site will not be accessible from approximately October 4 to 25. Since some people still engage in their favorite water sports despite colder temperatures, it is important to note that the fence will be locked to ensure people’s safety and the site integrity. 

The project involves replacing the gabion-wall with riprap and refilling the beach with gravel (small round rocks) to prevent the beach sand from leaching out, as it has been doing for several years in the spring. A few innovations will also be implemented as a pilot project, such as a boat wave breaker support and installing a natural spur in the lake to block erosion in the spring. This represents an investment of nearly $200,000. 

A busy summer in the City’s parks and green spaces

The long-awaited work to modernize Haendel Park (Haendel Street) has recently been completed. The installation of the new, brighter and safer playground equipment, representing an investment of $80,000, was warmly welcomed by neighbourhood residents. 

Promised to Châteauguay-Centre residents, the brand-new De la Maçonnerie Park (rue de la Maçonnerie) is also ready. This park aims to reduce the heat islands caused by the presence of concrete and asphalt. Residents will be able to walk around this linear park, built above the natural retention basins of the land, and it will also separate the current residential area from potential future construction work. 

Decorated with shrubs and perennials, including benches and garbage bins, the area features 14 large natural rocks that match the decor and allow visitors to sit down. When the 20 trees which were planted are mature, residents will be able to enjoy a shaded area. 

Protection and enhancement

A project to protect and enhance the area’s shorelines is also under way for 2020, which involves the purchase and installation of three wharves at the Joseph-Laberge, Marcel-Seers and De la Commune parks, the planting of new vegetation of the shorelines on the sites of the three wharves and elsewhere along the Châteauguay River, as well ass the rehabilitation of a lookout at the nautical centre. 

The Ville de Châteauguay has therefore recently invested nearly $900,000 and plans to continue to invest in the coming years in the supply, installation and modernization of playground equipment in its parks to meet the population’s needs. The brand new skatepark, which was inaugurated on September 29, is also part of the various infrastructure enhancement projects.
