Why is it called Angrignon Park?
The park is named after Jean-Baptiste-Arthur Angrignon (1875 – 1948), a longtime member of the Executive Committee in Montreal, who oversaw the development of the park on land belonging to the Crawford family. The park was named after him in 1927.
Two other landmarks named after him are the shopping mall Carrefour Angrignon in LaSalle (built in 1986) and the Boulevard Angrignon (named in 1993).
