Promenade Samuel-De Champlain: Rest Pavilion
CreatorDaoust Lestage, Inc.
Raking view of shelter and bench, seen from path and steps down to the river shoreline, water fountain, path light and trash receptacle to the right; One of two rest pavilions (the other is in front of the Quai des hommes). The rest pavilion creates a further spot to sit and reflect on the St. Lawrence. "Restoring the river to Quebec" is the mandate that was given to the National Capital Commission Quebec for the realization of the Promenade Samuel-De Champlain. This was once one of the most degraded shoreline areas. The pavilions are made of rough sawn wood in celebration of the history of the timber industry in the area. They are shelters with a bench, water fountain and bike racks, situated between the bike path and the pedestrian path.
