From May 17 to September 30, 2018
Les Jardins Gamelin will once again host a rich and varied roster of cultural and citizen-driven activities, every day and night of the week. Thanks to an engaging design by Pépinière & co, including an outdoor restaurant, Les Jardins Gamelin will be a great destination for al fresco lunches, extended after-work drinks and lively weekends for the whole family.
Urban agriculture is a key feature of this warm-weather incarnation of Place Émilie-Gamelin. The Sentier Urbain organization is responsible for the gardens, vegetable plots and other greenery that will enliven the space for the season.
