A community park next to the Lansdowne parking lot is being annexed for the design competition, insisted the ward councillor, who issued a hands-off warning yesterday.
“Sylvia Holden is not part of Lansdowne Park and should not be redesigned — it’s just fine the way it is,” said Capital Ward Coun. Clive Doucet. “This is more lipstick on a pig. It’s the same tax-heavy, no-competition deal which will deliver 300,000 square feet of commercial space at no charge to the project promoters and $129 million from taxpayers for a stadium.”
The park is a strip of green space that runs along Holmwood Avenue between Bank Street and Queen Elizabeth Driveway. At the east end, it expands to include two baseball diamonds, a childcare facility, playgrounds and a pool.
