New wildlife sculpture garden part of soon-to-be renovated Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park

The City of Côte Saint-Luc will be home later this summer to 10 bronze sculptures of wildlife animals, donated by one of Canada’s pre-eminent wildlife sculptors, Shalom Bloom.

“We are honoured that Shalom Bloom is donating these impressive sculptures to Côte Saint-Luc,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “Our new Shalom Bloom Sculpture Garden will be a one-of-a-kind attraction, unlike anything else in Montreal. When people visit the island, this will become one of the must-see stops.”

An exhibit of the works of Shalom Bloom is currently on display at the Côte Saint-Luc Library Art Gallery at 5851 Cavendish Blvd.

The Shalom Bloom Sculpture Garden will be part of the overall renovation project at Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park approved by the City Council on Monday, April 11. 

“The park renovation also includes the reconstruction of the pathways, the replacement of the lighting, new playground equipment, new landscaped areas and furniture, a new water feature and an upgrade to the electrical supply for special events,” Mayor Brownstein said.

The overall cost to renovate Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park is $2.6 million. The work is scheduled to start in April and be completed by the end of October 2016.

Plans and specifications for the refurbishing of Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park were prepared by the consulting firm Stantec Experts‐conseils. The city received 10 tenders for the work. The lowest tender received was from Les Excavations Super Inc. for $2,607,789.45, which includes taxes.
