There will be a beach at the Old Port in 2012, somewhere near the clock tower.
Stefan, Rich, Kate, and 1 other are discussing. Toggle Comments
I saw these at Harbourfront. Better than nothing I guess but these “urban beaches” where you can’t go in the water are kinda sad, in a way. At least there’s Dore Beach. Or whatever it’s called, now.
I imagine this beach idea is based on the Paris Plages, which has been popular. In fact Le Devoir thinks so too.
Other plans for the Old Port have also been floated.
Here’s a Wiki Commons photo gallery on HTO Park in Toronto:
In vienna there are also several beaches, similar layout as in paris, but they are all operated as bars (you can use the chairs if you order a drink). is it free to use in paris?
the advantage of these ‘beaches’ is that people pass, see their friends, can talk with them etc. the old port proposal is a locked-off area where you have to pay to enter, and no swimming/cooling-off option. i don’t think i’d like to go there.
Yes, I’m seeing $7 being quoted as the fee to enter to sit on the sand. Comments on that piece suggest it’s public land that’s being enclosed but I don’t think it is (anyone know?). Maybe there would be some break for people with Accès Montréal cards.
I suddenly picture sand full of cigarette butts, and no water. I wonder if they’ll allow smoking…
The graphics suggest that it’s the north side and downstream end of the Clock Tower Pier that’ll be redeveloped. The north side is a low-level pier, which is great for proximity to the water, but it faces the wrong way for sun tanning. The basin hosted a marina a couple of summers back, and a part of the pier was used by the Lachine Rapids jet boat tour operator.
it is public, but managed by the federal government, as explained here: http://www.clcl.ca/en/home.htm – fat chance for access montreal card :-(
