The Forum was a free online event for Montreal’s park enthusiasts, community park groups urban planning and park professionals and non-profit organizations dedicated to city parks.
The Forum officially launched the Montreal Park People Network, a dedicated space to strengthen community engagement, network, and share our expertise, knowledge and experience to activate these essential urban green spaces.
