The abandoned waterpark in Piedmont

Piedmont (Quebec), Canada

Once upon a time, a small piece of land bordering Autoroute 15 in Piedmont came to life every summer as a place of amusement. The Cascades d'Eau Piedmont, home of the Laurentian's iconic giant faucet, was Quebec's oldest water park when it ceased operations in 2010, 27 years after its gates opened for the first time. 

MSSI, owner of the St-Sauveur water park located across Autoroute 15 from Piedmont, bought the Cascades d'Eau several years prior; after years of fighting with the municipality of Piedmont concerning zoning, MSSI decided to close the park. (They had been requesting a zoning change that would permit them to install amusement park rides for children in the upper part of the park, which had been closed years prior). 

Several slides were relocated to St-Sauveur, and MSSI had stated that the water faucet would make the move as well; however, as of January 2013 it was still standing guard over the abandoned park.
