Pigeon Hole Park

Petition aims to save Pigeon Hole Park, a rare green space in Old Montreal

An approved real estate project plans to replace the park with a seven-storey building.

Not far from the Notre-Dame Basilica and the Centaur Theatre on Notre-Dame Street, Pigeon Hole Park provides a breather for Montrealers and tourists alike, a rare bit of green space in Old Montreal. But a Mondev real estate project that has been approved by the city would replace the park in its entirety with a seven-storey building featuring over 200 units.

Mondev plan for Pigeon Hole Park

A petition has been posted on Change.org to save the park, and it has nearly reached its preliminary goal of 1,000 signatures.

From the Pigeon Hole Park petition:

“I am outraged that such a project has been approved by the city of Montreal. In a historic district where there are restrictions on the materials and colours used during renovations of existing buildings, how can a building (like this) be approved ?!”
