Dollard-Des-Ormeaux

Dollard-des-Ormeaux (pronounced doll-lard-days-ormo), was originally part of the parish of Pointe-Claire. It became its own entity in 1924 and was incorporated as a city in 1960. At that time, the population was less than 2,000. A mere 10 years later, the city boasted over 25,000 residents.

Also known as DDO, this city is mostly residential with a well-developed commercial zone along St-Jean and Sources Boulevards. The city is known for its outstanding recreational facilities including a civic center which houses 3 indoor arenas, 2 swimming pools with a diving complex. The city also has an amphitheater.

In the heart of the community lies Centennial Park, a beautiful 48 hectare green space with an artificial lake that was created in 1967 in honor of the city’s centennial birthday. Residents enjoy year-round activities including walking, jogging, biking in summer, and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skating and tobogganing in winter. The park features wildlife as well, not to mention great photo opportunities!
