Together, let’s reinvent Gagné Park !

The Town of Sutton has set aside $100,000 to revitalize the park located on Gagné Street near the south end of Western Street. The Quality of Life Advisory Committee (QLAC) has been given the mandate to consult the population likely to benefit from it.  

Various activities will take place in May and early June, to allow interested people, young and old, to share their ideas to redefine this park. Focus groups with families and residents living near the park, interactive sessions for children of various age groups are planned, as well as interviews with professionals in the educational community.  

If you have used the park in recent years, alone, with your children or with your friends, or if you live within a 15-minute walk or bike ride from the park, the QLAC is very interested in hearing from you. There are three ways to express yourself:

  1. Visit Gagné Park on June 8 between 9-12 p.m.; members of the committee and the Town administration will be on hand to explain the Park’s particularities. Interactive activities are planned for you and your children to express yourself OR;
  2. If you are unable to attend the June 8 event, you can complete an online questionnaire that takes no more than 10 minutes to complete, here (click here) or the paper form available at Town Hall or the Tourist Information Office. We suggest that you visit the park before filling out the form, and submit it to Town Hall or the Tourist Information Office no later than June 7, 2024 OR;
  3. Participate in one of the group discussions or interviews that will be held in May and early June 2024. If you have not been approached and would like to participate in one of these discussions, please send us an email to [email protected] no later than June 2, indicating “Gagné Park” in the “subject” space and adding the phone number where a member of the QLAC can reach you.

Online questionnaire 

The results of the consultation and suggestions will be compiled by the QLAC and the priorities that emerge will then be communicated to the Town, which will have the final plan drawn up by professionals. The final plan will have to take into account the topological and legal constraints of the site, but the Town aims to align itself as much as possible with the needs of current and future users. The goal is to be able to complete the redevelopment of the park in the summer of 2025!
