Parc is a station on the Blue Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system, operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located in the Park Extension district of the Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] The station was built inside the extreme western part of the Canadian Pacific's former Park Avenue Station, and connects with Agence métropolitaine de transport's Parc Station.

Overview[edit]

It is a normal side platform station. The entrance to the station was built within the former men's smoking room of the now disused Park Avenue Station, built in 1931. The platform level of the station features a frieze by Huguette Desjardins, and the skylight at the foot of the stairs to the exit contains a sculpture called Métamorphose d'Icare by Claire Sarrasin, an homage to the local Greek community.

Origin of name[edit]

Parc comes from Park Avenue (Avenue du Parc), which is a main north/south thoroughfare in Montreal. Park Avenue gets its name from the fact that part of it runs along Mount Royal Park.
