Montreal's new linear park

An urban park can be a green oasis in the city, a leafy escape from the concrete and traffic. (Think of Mont Royal or Parc Lafontaine.)

But an urban park can also be a place that embraces the city and takes inspiration from the history around it.

Montreal's newest park, Le Belvédère du Chemin qui Marche puts the surrounding city and the river on display. 

It's is a linear, raised park that may draw some comparisons to The High Line in New York City. 

Listen to Jeanette's interview the park's designer, Patricia Lussier. (Pictured. Photo by Jeanette Kelly.)
