Beautifying one of the St. Lawrence’s jewel
Residents are being invited to visit beautiful Pointe Maligne in Cornwall where work is wrapping up on another important beautification project.
Partners with the Le Village BIA, Downtown BIA, City of Cornwall, Cornwall Waterfront Committee and Cornwall District Minor Baseball trumpeted a partnership that has resulted in a fresh new look to a historic piece of the city.
Gone are piles of trash, mounds of dirt and much of the graffiti that dominated the area near the point and nearby Legion Park ball diamonds. The refuse has been replaced by fresh paint, beautiful landscapes and a renewed interest in Pointe Maligne, a jewel on the St. Lawrence River off of Bergeron Drive.
“I’d like to invite everyone to come to come down to Pointe Maligne,
park your car, and go up into the park area and appreciate the beautiful
waterfront views,” Le Village BIA chair Michel Dubuc said on July 13 during a
media event to show the changes at the park. “This project represents what
Centretown is all about. Bringing various community partners with a common goal
together in order to complete, in this case, a beautification project.”
