CLARENCE-ROCKLAND – May 28, 2019 – The City of Clarence-Rockland announced during the sod-turning ceremony that its new park will be named Alain Potvin Park, to honour this community builder.
The Alain Potvin Park, located at the intersection of Docteur Corbeil Boulevard and Ruby Street in Rockland, is a 7.45 green space with primarily a winter vocation and will include the following characteristics:
- Toboggan hill developed and lit
- Lit trail of more than 500 m., iced for skating during winter
- Service shelter
“It is important for the City of Clarence-Rockland to honor Mr. Alain Potvin, founder of one of the biggest private business of our municipality. Mr. Potvin is also an important area developer and we owe him, among other things, Morris Village where this park is located,” declared Mayor Guy Desjardins.
The concept for this park originates from an advisory committee made of municipal residents.
