Last time I walked through Hampton Park I was surprised at the amount of trees removed.
The National Capital Commission (NCC) is exploring the possibility of creating a linear shoreline park on lands between Preston Street and Carling Avenue to enhance the green space along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway. We would like to invite a representative from your organization to participate in a planning workshop to explore this idea. The workshop will be held on May 27.
The purpose of the workshop is to consider various ways to transform sections of the Ottawa River shoreline corridor into a park. The aim is to make this corridor a space that people visit more often and that is more accessible to the public for a variety of uses, while also ensuring unimpeded access to the river for the neighbouring communities.
This workshop is part of the development of the Capital Urban Lands Master Plan and Parkways Policy, and follows on public consultations that were held in March. Participants will have an opportunity to contribute toward the development of this idea by helping the NCC to define a vision and principles that will guide further consideration of the park, as well as the activities and uses that would be suitable for the space, considering its importance to the Capital.
The workshop will take place as follows.
