Architecture[edit]

Station kiosk

Angrignon Metro station is built with windows encasing the tracks and side platforms, which creates a very light and airy environment. Jean-Louis Beaulieu received an award from the Ordre des architectes du Québec[2] for the design of the station.

The station is equipped with the MétroVision information screens which displays news, commercials, and the time till the next train.

Origin of the name[edit]

Jean-Baptiste Arthur Angrignon was alderman of the district of Saint-Paul and a member of the Executive Committee of the city of Montreal. He oversaw the development of what is now Parc Angrignon on what was land that belonged to the Crawford family. The area was named after him in 1927.
