History

Jean-Baptiste Arthur Angrignon was an alderman for the district of St-Paul and an executive committee member for the city of Montreal. Jean Baptiste Angrignon oversaw the creation of Angrignon Park, which was named after him in 1927. The land where the station is located, once belonged to the Crawford family.

Angrignon Metro was built with windows showing off the tracks and platforms. This design created a nice flow of Natural light into the station. Jean-Louis Beaulieu, the architect received an award from the Ordre des Architectes du Québec, for the design of the station.
