History of Jarry Park

Le Devoir’s Jeanne Corriveau gives us the history of Jarry Park; although she mentions that it was named for Raoul Jarry, a councillor in the area in the 1920s, she doesn’t add the odd fact that the adjoining street is named for a different, unrelated Jarry, landowner Stanislas Blégnier dit Jarry.

I also missed last week a history of Mount Royal park, done by another of their writers.
