The Cultural and Recreational Complex is home to the first green roof in the City of Clarence-Rockland since the summer of 2012. The most visible aspect of this initiative is undeniably the living roof.

The awareness to green roofs is nonetheless at the heart of the project's approach. With this in mind, several awareness workshops were held in the various schools in Clarence-Rockland and offered to the general public.
