Municipal Parks and Infrastructure

Missisquoi North Park, André-Gagnon sector

The Missisquoi North Park, André-Gagnon Sector, is located at the northern entrance to the village of Mansonville.  In 2021 and 2022, major improvements were made to the playgrounds and the park in general.

During the regular council meeting, the council proceeded to the adoption of resolutions in order to acquire equipment for the future ice trails at André-Gagnon Park.  Indeed, a tractor and ice maintenance equipment will be acquired for the maintenance of the skating trails.  As the Zamboni acquired last November is only intended for the skating rink, the purchase of this equipment will prove to be judicious.

In the same context, the park’s master plan was also adopted and work on the new equipment was launched in the fall.

Furthermore, the municipality continues to be proactive in seeking funding from all levels of government: a request for financial assistance has been submitted to the federal government for the service building adjacent to the multifunctional shelter.  The project consists of enlarging the building in order to house the park equipment and to develop the interior to accommodate more users who wish to enjoy the park.

Additional work is underway or will be done in the summer of 2022 to add services and activities to the park: soccer (completed in May), pétanque (bocce) courts (completed in May), new pumptrack (completed in June), water games (completed in June), dek hockey (coming soon), new parking lot (coming soon), baseball and tennis court restoration (June and July), children’s play area (late summer).
