Montreal wants to create a recreational tourism hub in Lachine Bay

The City of Montreal is launching a consultation process, which will aim to create a “recreational tourism hub” in Lachine Bay to make fishing, swimming and water sports possible.

The selected concept will be unveiled in the winter of 2023.

The sector, located between the Lachine Museum and the Quai de la 34e Avenue, should eventually include a water sports offer. The City also wishes to promote its cultural development.

“Citizens shared with us their desire for swimming, water sports, fishing and nature preservation. Rich in these ideas, we are continuing to work to develop, clarify and materialize this vision,” said Maja Vodanovic, Mayor of the Borough of Lachine.

In parallel with this collaborative approach, which aims to create a plan for the development of the sector, the City of Montreal will prepare plans and specifications during the fall to develop the spaces under its jurisdiction.

Various projects are already underway in the sector. In June 2021, the City launched a redevelopment project for Pier 34, which should allow the practice of various activities, including fishing.

In July 2020, Montreal also closed the Lachine marina, with the aim of transforming the place into a “riverside park”. The decision had led to a legal fight with the Association of Boaters of the Lachine Marina, which then operated the place. However, it gave up the fight in April 2021.
