Sheep return to Pointe-Claire's Edgewater Park


They're ba-a-a-a-a-ck.

The City of Pointe-Claire announced that Edgewater Park, located along Lake Saint-Louis near Pointe-Claire Village, will once again be the home of six sheep.

The sheep are part of an eco-grazing project. They will be grazing the grass and helping maintain the park in an entirely natural way. 

"This fun, educational initiative, which brought the community together, is in line with the City's environmental orientations," said Mayor John Belvedere. "Last summer, citizens took high interest in the project, bringing them together and proving the importance of sustainable development within Pointe-Claire."

The sheep will be at the park from June 17 to July 14 and August 5 to 18. Along with being able to feed the flock (feed is available for $0.25), the City has also planned a series of educational activities for the whole family during the sheeps' stay.

Should the weather be less than ideal (storms or heat waves), don't worry, a shelter is setup at the park to protect the sheep and a shepherd will watch over the flock.
