Heritage Panels

Heritage Panels

The Rouville RCM is pleased to announce a new series of historical panels on La Route des Champs, the linear park which follows the former railway route of the Montreal & Southern Counties Railway. Ten of these panels are already in place, and a total of fourteen will be installed. Now when you cycle, run or walk along the route you can use these panels to enrich your understanding of the region’s history, heritage and people. The panels are also now available on the web, in both French and English.
