Dickie Moore Park to be created

According to CTV, a new park to be named after Canadiens left winger Dickie Moore will be created in Park Extension, where Moore grew up. There’s already a small play park at the corner there, with the neutral name Parc Beaumont-de l’Épée, but there’s also an unoccupied lot that will likely become the new park, diagonally adjacent. The Journal describes the location as in Outremont but they’re wrong.

Moore died in 2015; he was a member of the team that won five consecutive Stanley cups from 1956 to 1960, thus in local terms a kind of saint.
