The landscape of the Saint-Leonard district is constantly changing, since its single-family homes and multi-units are renovated or completely rebuilt, and many condo buildings are erected.
The location of the borough facilitates travel on the island since the area along the highway and several bus routes are available.
One thing that does not change is that St. Leonard remains a neighborhood where family life is favorable. The neighborhood offers many French and English schools, two ice rinks, a football stadium and an aquatic complex. With eight public parks, residents enjoy beautiful green spaces where they can relax, enjoy time with the family or keep fit.
In fact, it is in one of these parks that takes place annually. Fête du citoyen , a big family celebration offered by the borough.
The area's main cultural activity venue, the Leonardo Da Vinci Center , which includes theater, dance and music, is also close to the municipal library and its art gallery.
St-Léonard offers several bakeries, cafes and restaurants, as well as many shops and stores along the main arteries such as Jean-Talon, Jarry, Langelier and Lacordaire. A few years ago, the Place Viau shopping center opened, adding to the other two shopping centers that were already there.
