The Stations

Jarry

Jarry is a station on the Orange Line of Montreal's Metro. The station is named after rue Jarry, which itself was named after Bernard Bleinier dit Jarry.

The station is in proximity to Parc Jarry, one of the large parks in the City of Montreal, although De Castelnau and Parc stations are physically closer.

The station has two entrances, one is a standalone entrance building, while the other is integrated into the ground floor of an apartment building built above. Long escalators connect the entrance to the mezzanine level underneath. On the mezzanine, the ceiling is made almost like a honeycomb, with illumination in each cell. The floor is mostly white tile, however, there are artistic circle formations of coloured tiles near the fare gates and the start of the overhead walkway to cross to the other platform access.

The walkway itself is long and narrow, with low sides, drawing attention to the contrast between the lightly coloured walkway and the darker platform area below.

Once at platform level, the floor changes to an assortment of various dark brown coloured tiles, framed with stainless steel benches for seating along the sides.

UNIQUE FEATURES

An interesting aspect of this station is how one of its entrances is integrated with the ground level of an apartment building. Another is the unique honeycomb ceiling.

PUBLIC ARTWORK

There isn't any official artwork at this station, however, outside of the main entrance, there is a concrete overhang canopy, which has been painted by street artists, providing colour to the exterior entrance area of the station.
