More of the Fountain at Parc Lafontaine

Howdy!

While Parc Lafontaine has been around since 1874 or so, the town ponds connected by a waterfall were not introduced until 1900, and the fountain was built in 1929 because Léon Trépanier wanted one there, and was paid for by Westinghouse. I’m going to have to return next spring as at nighttime, it is illuminated.

More Waterfalls at the Hilton Bonaventure Hotel

Howdy!

Place Bonaventure was built in 1967 by Ray Affleck, and I would guess that while not exact, the waterfalls were part of the original plans.
