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.

VISION

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