Reimagining SPACE of Centennial Park and Lord Reading Property

In November, Mayor Georges Bourelle and Council members initiated a project important for the future of Beaconsfield entitled Reimagining SPACE to revitalize Centennial Park, its cultural centre, and the adjacent property, the Lord Reading Yacht Club. The project aims to meet our current and future needs for cultural and community services in a quality environment. This process will be spread over several months during which residents will be invited to imagine and offer ideas to help create an attractive space for the park, the waterfront, for the benefit of all, in a vision of the future.

The goal to revitalize this area is to review, together with citizens, the development of these properties in order to preserve the beauty of the site as well as to enhance the access to the lake and imagine a multi-purpose centre that meets our community and cultural needs in a spirit of sustainable development.


“Develop a project to revitalize Centennial Park and the Lord Reading property with the collaboration of Beaconsfield residents that combines culture, leisure and nature.”




Public Consultation and Creative Workshops

“The world of imagination is boundless.” Jean-Jacques Rousseau 

Centennial Park is an enchanting gathering place for residents, instilling them with pride. How can we revitalize this space to reflect our image and values? 

There is no bad idea; any proposal for improvement is welcome! This philosophy inspires the City to adopt an innovative approach in its consultation process by holding creative workshops. 

Have we sparked your curiosity? Come along with us and bring your ideas to life by participating in the public consultations held at the Herb Linder Annex, 303 Beaconsfield Boulevard: 

Park Diagnosis:
Wednesday, February 20 at 7 p.m. 

Creative Workshops:
• Wednesday, March 13 at 7 p.m.
• Wednesday, April 3 at 7 p.m.
• Wednesday, April 24 at 7 p.m.

The mandate of this committee will be to evaluate the ideas submitted by residents during creative workshops and to propose project scenarios to Council that integrate culture, nature and leisure.

This committee includes two members of Council: Mr. Robert Mercuri as Chair and Ms. Karen Messier as a member. The selection of the nine committee members was based on the diversity of qualifications and needs in order to ensure the creation of a multidisciplinary committee that is complementary and representative of the community. The selected members are Mary Allen, André Bergeron, Katherine Crewe (missing from photo), Geoffrey Kelley, Anna Polspoel, Daniele Bouchard Serhan, Wade Staddon, Sam Watts and Lena Zahnan.
