Circuit Jardins – Sentier Urbain

Circuit Jardins – Sentier Urbain

01/01/1993 - Present

Led by the non-profit organization Sentier Urbain, whose mission is to encourage community mobilization for greener social spaces, Circuit Jardins transforms socially problematic vacant lots into naturalized, thematic gardens. These charming gardens are located in the Ville-Marie and Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve districts. They are veritable oases that strengthen the ties between humans and nature, fight the negative effects of urban heat islands, and increase the city’s biodiversity, all while creating new green spaces for citizens.
