West Don Lands Park

One of the highlights of the West Don Lands revitalisation project is the creation of a park on the west side of the river between the Lakeshore railway and King St East. Practically speaking, the main reason for the park is that it will occupy the area where the berm will be built. Since they can't build anything on top of it, we get a park instead. Since this is the way of the world, I'll bite my tongue and just say thankyou.

There is a public forum on Tuesday, April 18, 2006 from 7 -9 PM in the Champagne Ballroom, Novotel Hotel at 45 The Esplanade. If you go, make sure to ask why there no trees will be planted on the berm.

On a related note, the Lower Don Trail will finally close on April 17, 2006. The TRCA has awarded the construction project to dig a pedestrian tunnel underneath the Lakeshore railway bridge and they will be starting construction very soon. PDF News Release.

Hi! Recently came across your blog, do you have any insight into when a sales office may potentially open for the residential portion of the West Don Lands revitalization project?
