MU created playful ground markings in four parks in the Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie borough to energize the area. The works also serve as active pathways for local and visiting children.
In Étienne-Desmarteau park, Roadsworth created a street mural that incorporates the colours from different parts of the nearby playground. It invites children to jump from one shape to the next or to follow the lines connecting the various painted forms.
At Montcalm park, Rafael Sottolichio’s La course à l’étoile gives kids a painted pathway that encourages them to follow the lines, hop from one letter to another to spell a word, then jump from diamond to diamond to reach the star.
At Père-Marquette park, Alix Le Clerq and Gello Hoodbye painted a giant snakes and ladders in one of the green space’s alleys.
And in Joseph-Paré park, Julian Palma dreamed up a marine-themed painted path that lets kids walk among jellyfish, seahorses, a sea snake and an octopus.
