Description:
Otterburn Park is a small town located 40km east of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The population as of the Canada 2006 Census was 8,464. The town lies south of Mont-Saint-Hilaire, on the Richelieu River, and is one of the few officially bilingual towns in Qu├ębec.

History

The once-rural region that the town now occupies became a favourite destination for CN Rail company picnics. Many CN employees bought or built summer cottages, and eventually people took up permanent residency in the town.

In 1864, on a train bridge crossing the Richelieu River between Otterburn Park and Beloeil, 99 people were killed when an immigrant train failed to stop at an open swing bridge and fell into the river. Hence the bridge's name, "Pont Noir", or black bridge.
