Discover the Pointe-Claire neighbourhood.
The city offers an exceptional quality of life along the river, thanks in large part to its many landscaped and urban amenities: superb parks, art gallery, windmill, church, marina, tennis courts, canoeing club, Beaconsfield Golf Club… Pedaling freely, driving a convertible or sailing on Lake Saint-Louis is the norm and custom. English is the main language spoken here, with two-thirds of the 31,380 residents being fluent in English. A quarter of the population is strictly English-speaking.
The attachment to tradition is not only perceptible in the preservation of heritage, such as the famous Pointe Claire windmill, its magnificent 19th century Saint-Joachim church, the Legault house, the Stewart Hall manor or the Hyacinthe-Jamme-dit-Carrière house. The Beaconsfield Golf Club, with its old-fashioned habits, its lushly decorated clubhouse, its impeccably manicured grounds… everything inspires a slightly old-fashioned but very elegant charm. Its members cherish the prestige of the Beaconsfield Club as a treasure preserved in the heart of the metropolis, where one feels pampered. The Stewart Hall Art Gallery in the beautiful stone building of the Pointe-Claire Cultural Centre is another rendezvous with a certain lifestyle, where “The Friends of Stewart Hall” cultivate family traditions and the spirit of the holidays.
Residential space is concentrated in the central and southern parts of the City, with mostly single-family, semi-detached and row houses. The three most popular neighbourhoods are : Valois, Cedar Park Heights and Lakeside Heights. A few high-rise buildings line Highway 20, and a large residential project, Quartier Greenwich (or Greenwich Homes), is being developed along St. John Boulevard to provide up to 1,000 housing units (townhouses, bungalows and condos). This large-scale project relies on its proximity to schools, businesses and public transit to attract families. Between each building, pools and terraces have been created to create links between residents. In terms of transportation, the three Vaudreuil-Hudson commuter train stations as well as highways 20 and 40 are another asset of the city. As for greenery, families can take advantage of the Terra-Cotta nature park, a wooded area of nearly 40 hectares, offering 4.4 kilometers of walking trails and home to numerous birds, reptiles and mammals.
