Votre guide

Fort Rolland is a mid-sized waterfront neighbourhood in Lachine. It begins around 56th Avenue in the west, where it borders the town of Dorval, and reaches as far east as 32nd. Its south border is the St-Laurence River, with St-Joseph Boulevard running along the riverside. Highway 20 acts as the northern residential border.

Style de vie

Fort Rolland is the most suburban and of all the neighbourhoods in Lachine. The neighbourhood is also more middle class than other areas nearby, with single family homes and large front lawns. Living here reflects the demographics. Instead of a bustling night life, there's plenty of parks and green spaces for families to take the kids out on the weekends or go out for bike rides in the evenings.

Pouls du quartier

Pouls du quartierPouls du quartier

Like most of the neighbourhoods by the riverside, Fort Rolland is a fairly laid back part of town. On sunny afternoons, you'll spot plenty of cyclists and joggers by the waterfront, along with people taking in the view or having dinner at any of the many establishments along St-Joseph Boulevard.

Dans les environs

Dans les environsDans les environs

Fort Rolland is mostly home to long-term residents, many of whom are families with kids or couples that are around retirement age. Because it’s outside of the metro zone, and fairly slow to get downtown by public transport, you likely won't see many college or university students living out here.

Démographie

Fort Rolland has all the amenities and services that families could need. There are several elementary and high schools, both private and public, along with grocery stores, hardware outlets and the like. There's also the waterfront, which is the key attraction in the area. Green space is never too far away.

You can get around locally by bike or foot, but to get elsewhere in the city you'll want a car. The bus routes are somewhat limited and there's no metro stations anywhere near. Fortunately, there's a commuter train station at the edge of the neighbourhood and it's not far from the Dorval bus terminal.

Le pour et le contre

Le pour et le contreLe pour et le contre

Depending on your ideal night out, you will either love this neighbourhood or become bored fast. Fort Rolland isn't an area known for its night life or for having trendy, university-crowd hot spots. Instead, this is an area that's considered best suited for families or couples who are around retirement age.

An Italian eatery with a front patio that faces Parc St-Louis. It's a little pricey, and the portions aren't enormous, but the food more than makes up for it. Inside there's often live music.

Some of the spots can be pretty pricey, especially along the St-Joseph Boulevard, but you elsewhere you can easily find single-family homes for less than the price of condos elsewhere in the city.

Ce qu’on en dit

«I love living somewhere when the river is right there in front of you. When the weather's nice, I usually try to go for a walk with the stroller every night of the week if I can.»

- Julie, Resident

«It's relaxing, there's never any commotion like downtown; it's a great place to raise the kids.»

- Jean Michel, Resident

«I couldn't imagine being anywhere else, especially once you start to get to know the locals, and realize we all have a lot of common in this part of town.»

- Howard, Business Owner
