Completely landscaped since 2014, the Desjardins Halt is enjoyed by everyone, from children to grandparents.
It boasts a water play area to cool off, bocce ball courts, several picnic tables, restrooms, water fountains and a paved parking lot. The Richelieu terrace provides for a nice shade when it's hot, and from which you can enjoy the view on the Chaudière Valley.
For environmental concerns, wood was the material of choice when building the Desjardins Halt. In September 2014, the city received the Cecobois Excellence Award with great honor. This award is granted to municipalities that use wood as building material for one or several buildings. The Desjardins Halt project was also nominated in the Sustainable Environment category.
