Sherbrooke city officials unveils new temporary park

Record Staff

The City of Sherbrooke announced the opening of Place Well Sud, a new temporary park that will be accessible starting Thursday on King Street West, between Wellington South and Du Dépôt streets.
This park is set up on a vacant lot downtown, next to the local employment center. City officials came up with Well Sud to compliment the two Wellington-sur-Mer locations inaugurated this summer.
Residents are invited to visit place Well Sud to eat, talk and have fun. The city installed public furniture and ambient lighting in order to make the park more welcoming and a focal point for locals in the Well South district.
They also collaborated with the Sherbrooke History Museum, posting a dozen historical photos in an exhibit in the new park. And they plan to host several activities there in the coming weeks as part of the Brise culturelle.
The creation of place Well Sud aims to alleviate residents’ frustrations about the major work underway in the Well Sud district. The temporary park will remain accessible at least until the Espace Centro project is completed in 2022.
Alcohol is permitted in the park, similar to Wellington-sur-Mer, and it must be accompanied by a meal. Place Well Sud is open between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m., until October 17. For more information, visit
