A Montreal borough, Pierrefonds-Roxboro is bordered to the south and west by the West Island municipalities of Kirkland, Pointe-Claire, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Senneville and Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue.

Primarily a residential area, this borough gives residents the option to live off of the shorelines of the Rivière des Prairies or closer to urban living next to local services and stores. What’s more, the area is home to a slew of green space including the largest nature park in Montreal.

The Vibe

This borough is primarily a residential neighbourhood, but also offers residents the benefit of easy access to grocery stores, shopping malls and other services. The area spans across a long and narrow stretch of land which makes for a multifaceted location with varied neighbourhoods. Residents enjoy both quiet living close to nature parks and the Rivière des Prairies, as well as urban living.

Meet the Neighbours

This borough is home to a significant number of families with young children. In fact, 19 percent of its population is between the ages of 0 and 14 years old.

Thirty-eight percent of the population is originally from another country.

In the Area

Planes, Trains & Automobiles

The area is served fairly well by public transportation, but the best way to get around it and its neighbouring municipalities is by car. It is served by the Sunnybrooke and Roxboro-Pierrefonds commuter trains and a number of express buses located on the main boulevards which bring commuters to the nearest metro. Drivers can access highway 20 and 40 by the main boulevards and highway 13, by Gouin Boulevard.

The Good, the Bad & the Rest

Like living in many of the boroughs and municipalities located West to the Island, the area provides a quiet escape from the city and tons of green spaces for sports enthusiasts and young families. The only issues arise when it’s actually time to head east; traffic is an on-going issue and a sore-spot for drivers.

Dollars & Sense

Despite the development of some parts of the borough which includes newer real estate like condos and semi-attached housing, residents can also find a wide range of older houses at attractive prices. Restaurants are slightly less expensive in the area compared to those located in the downtown core of Montreal.
