Berczy Park is a 3,606-square-metre park designed by renowned landscape architects from Claude Cormier & Associés that features a unique two-tiered fountain surrounded by 27 metal dogs, each spraying water from their mouths. According to the City, the fountain is positioned in the central plaza with granite mosaic paving, wider sidewalks, grassy berms, garden beds and new trees planted in state-of-the-art Silva Cell growing chambers.
