Recreational vehicles in a park

atvs 004.jpgParc Rene Levesque in Lachine is usually a pretty quiet place. There's a bike path, a sculpture garden, and lots of trees. But this week, it's been looking and sounding a lot different.

BRP (Bombardier Recreational Products) is holding a week-long event in Parc Rene Levesque to showcase its land and sea motorized recreational vehicles. A dirt track has been built on the park lawn, and sea-doos are in the surrounding water. All week, dealers from around the world have been here testing out four wheelers and sea doos. And this weekend, members of the public will have an opportunity to try out these vehicles.

But not everyone is thrilled about having a bunch of motorized toys in their park.
