Acadie station is a Montreal Metro in the Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] It is operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) and serves the Blue Line. It is located in the Parc-Extension district.

Overview[edit]

It is a normal side platform station. Two entrances on either side of boul. de l'Acadie lead to a common ticket hall. The station platform is decorated in bold colours such as blue, hot pink, black, and slate grey. The ticket hall is host to a tall clock and bench ensemble entitled Lieu de rendez-vous by Météore Design and the seating is by sculptor Michel Morelli. A series of whimsical photographic works by Jean Mercier showing people turning cartwheels and mid-air somersaults adorns the walls of the stairwell and passages to the exits.

Origin of name[edit]

Acadie was named for the Boulevard de l'Acadie, in turn named to remember Acadia, the site of the first permanent French settlement in North America.
