New life for Parc Jean Drapeau

Recommended Posts

It is interesting that the Expo 67 sign will be installed at this proposed amphitheatre.  According to one person responding to the Gazette article, that is the original Expo 67 sign that appears in so many vintage photographs.  If it is, and it really still exists, I wonder where it now is and I think it's cool it will be restored and put in a place of honor.

While I like the plans, it looks like a lot of work and a lot of money.  Based on reader responses to the Montreal Gazette article, the project won't be very popular.  Also, I find it very disappointing that with this huge expenditure, there appear to be no plans to restore Place des Nations.

There are only about ten comments.  In a metro area of over 4 million that's not an indication of what people may think of the project.  I wondered about Place des Nations as well.  It's not in the rendering.  It's restoration would be a great tribute to Expo in 2017 but it doesn't seem to be a part of this project.
