"A new discovery deep below a Saint-Leonard park is attracting a lot of attention.

People have been exploring a cave underneath Parc Pix-XII since it was discovered in 1812 but just last month, cavers found something incredible.

“It’s a very rare event in your life [that] you discover so much cave passage,” said Luc Le Blanc of the Quebec Caving Society.

Le Blanc was among the people who uncovered a vast new section of the cave.

The new section contains rock formations crews believe took 15,000 years to form."

Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."
