As a destination for citizens of the neighborhood, the city and tourists, Espace La Fontaine invites you to discover the heritage of La Fontaine Park, its biodiversity, its uniqueness and the artists of the city.

Our values

The Espace La Fontaine team favors five key values:


A destination open to people, their ideas and their differences. As a NPO, we are proud to be able to share and develop our activities according to what brings us together as a community. We recognize the richness of each of our differences and we consider them in all our decisions.

Harmony with the space and respect for the environment

Proud of the biodiversity and the heritage that gives a unique character to the park. We strongly believe that each individual can contribute to the well-being and conservation of our planet, which is why all our decisions take into account the principles of sustainable development.


A unique and friendly destination, respectful of its clientele and its environment. We advocate simple, unpretentious actions so that each of our guests feels almost at home. We are aware that each of our actions can have an impact on our surroundings, our community, our planet, which is why we always act in an honest and respectful way.


An organization showing boldness and originality. We put forward experiences and moments, rather than products and services. We are constantly reinventing ourselves to offer the best to our customers.


A place of convergence for neighborhood organizations. We maintain good relations with each of our partners and collaborators so that the interests of each are met.
