Notman garden to become a park

The city is selling the Snowdon Theatre to a private owner, conditional to the preservation of its art deco façade.

The city is doing something a lot of Plateau dwellers have wished for: expropriating the garden of Notman House for a park. The green space was teetering on the brink of losing its centenarian trees for a condo development.

Denis Coderre’s dream of turning every spare green space into a baseball diamond is over. The Plante administration has ended the program, and is going to allow every borough to decide what kind of sports facility its residents want (if any).
