Milton Park: Architectural Heritage and Citizen Action

Dates: From April to November

Max. number: 60
Cost: adults $16, students $12.50, seniors $14.50 per person

Montreal neighbourhoods were transformed during a surge of modernism in the 1970s as old buildings were demolished to make way for concrete high rises. That was the fate awaiting the charming Milton Park neighbourhood, commonly knowns as the McGill Ghetto, until a strong citizens’ movement began fighting to save it. This guided tour sheds light on Milton Park’s architectural heritage, the battles waged by citizens to preserve their unique neighbourhood and the different ways ils buildings have been used over time.
