In the early 1970s, the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux created a unique Centennial Park now composed of an oasis of natural beauty and a recreation area of 120 acres around an artificial lake. The City also created a neighbourhood parks concept that provides for a park within one kilometer of each home.
Summer activities in any of the 33
parks of this best small City include baseball, softball, soccer,
volleyball and outdoor bocce, while snow sledding, snow shoeing,
cross-country skiing, skating and sliding down the toboggan hill take
over in the winter.
Adjacent to City Hall, a Civic Centre houses three skating rinks and two indoor swimming pools, a Cultural Centre offers a reception hall, an art gallery and a large library and, a Community Centre houses a Banquet Hall and meeting rooms.
The City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux is surrounded by Kirkland, Pierrefonds-Roxboro, Dorval and Pointe-Claire.
