The Montreal Parks and Playgrounds Association Inc.: A Historical Study of the Above Association from the Year of Its Foundation in 1896 to 1949
Abstract
In 1895-96, 20,000 women signed a petition under the name of the Park Protective Society to prevent the construction of a tramway running past the cemeteries along the side of Mount Royal. This group gave birth to the Montreal Parks and Playgrounds Association. For nearly 60 years, the Association acted as an advocate for the protection and creation of parks in Montreal.
