Open from May 31st to September 15th.
Village au Pied-du-Courant is a very nice installation to celebrate the summer, which reminds me of Berlin a bit. Containers of all colors, furniture made from recycled wood pallets, gardens in plastic bags, a large sandbox for kids and adults, an art gallery, a bar and foodtrucks… all that with a breathtaking view of the Jacques Cartier Bridge and a part of the St-Lawrence river. It is an urban living lab for the experimentation and development of new practices in design, entrepreneurship and the arts
What you will find:
✶ A community space on the park side
✶ An astronomy station
✶ The people’s pavilion and its hammocks
✶ Kids adventure playground
✶ Pétanque and basket fields
Just pick your favorite stuff to do and enjoy!
This concept was born from a desire to recapture the city, and more precisely the places that have unexploited urban potential. The idea is to highlight neutral territory, to make it accessible, visible and alive to offer a new experience.
When and why?
Thursday to Sunday. We go for the happy hour and pretend we’re at the beach. We go at night to have a front seat for the fireworks or dance to the sounds of hype DJs. Check out their website or Facebook page weekly.
The best way to get there is by bike, metro or foot. No parking available.
