Scope and Content

Long-range plan to preserve and expand Mount Royal Park. Definition and recognition of the logical boundaries of the mountain park area are called for by the Save the Mountain Committee. The plan would establish the right of city to acquire all properties within the designated areas as they become available, and would restrict construction and control building heights in the park area.

This project was initiated by H. P. Daniel van Ginkel and Blanche Lemco van Ginkel on their own account. The work was executed pro bono with Michel Chevalier, Harry Mayerovitch and Hazen Sise. It was effected with the support of the Montréal Parks and Playground Association. The recommendations were accepted and embodied in a private bill by the Québec Provincial Legislature and in the bylaws of the City of Montréal.
