Westmount Park

Kudos to the City for installing two of these instruments in the children’s playground! Their melodic sounds are Asian mediation music.

From the manufacturer’s website:

Freenotes Harmony Park is the industry leader in outdoor musical instruments. Invented by Grammy Award-Winning musician Richard Cooke more than 20 years ago these innovatively designed instruments are durable, sustainable, and perfectly tuned sound sculptures that enhance any outdoor space. Freenotes Harmony Park is creating a Global Musical Park Movement, creating music parks in communities everywhere. We have musical instrument installations on 5 continents including North and South America, Europe, Australia and Asia. In the United States, we have installations in all 50 states. We design and manufacture Freenotes in sunny Durango, CO.

Westmount Park – Family Day / Journée familiale de Westmount

Westmount’s forty-third annual Family Day in the park.  Despite light showers, and cool temperatures, in the morning the afternoon sunshine created a beautiful day.  A piece of trivia: the trackless kiddie train is manufactured by a company located in Granby Quebec.

In addition, Westmount residents should give a big thank you to Brian Gallery (former alderman & mayor)  for starting this annual tradition!


Westmount Park

Monday’s walk through the park – just before the city “opened their non-potable water taps” and filled the lagoon.

Many years ago, the Glen stream coursed through the park terminating in St. Henri forming a lake. The park’s stream is still extant coursing through underground conduits.  The lake, however, was drained to allow residential and transportation development.

The wisdom of the stream’s fate, through the park, is an issue that is still open for debate.
