Do You Like Parks? Do You Like Lake Ontario?

lakeontariopark.jpgThen you’ll love Lake Ontario Park! At least, that would seem to be a reasonable assumption. However, if you’re looking for more reassurance (recommended), the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation (or, NAMBLA) is hosting a public forum on their plans for “Lake Ontario Park,” which is to be “one of Toronto’s great new park spaces and a defining destination for the city,” running from the Portlands (Cherry St. south of the Distillery District) in the west to the RC Harris Treatment Plant at the foot of Victoria Park Ave in the east.

Open House: 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Presentation & Facilitated Discussion: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Radisson Admiral Hotel (Ballroom)
249 Queens Quay West, Toronto

The meeting will also serve to update on the Port Lands Transition Sports Fields, and hopefully give them a more compelling name. It’s not yet clear how all these ideas will manage to play nice with the natural gas power plant that’s also going in the neighbourhood.
Oh, and p.s., no one tell Kingston we’re taxing their park name, ok? They won’t take it well, and we’ve got to stick together on this one.
