The revival of a Victorian Park in the heart of downtown

Lemay’s restoration and enhancement of Dorchester Square were guided by a deep appreciation of its evolution, reflecting nearly 300 years of history. The richness of Victorian landscaping permeates the new design.

The project encompasses the restoration of four monuments from the City of Montreal’s art collection and restoring the original lustre to this urban haven commemorating the Canadian confederation.
