Share your ideas: a new park for Main & E 7th Ave
A new park will be designed for the NE corner of Main Street and E. 7th Ave, and the Park Board is looking for your thoughts on what you’d like to see in the space. But don’t delay, the online survey closes on November 13, 2020!
At roughly 1000m2, the new park will occupy roughly a third of a city block – and will be part of an overall redevelopment of the block that also includes a non-market housing project.
This is an interesting site, and one that is prominently located in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. There’s lots of potential for the new public space to serve as a ‘gateway’ to the area, but there are also some challenges that will need to be accounted for as well. Chief among them: the task of creating an inviting gathering area next to a busy arterial road.
So how do you think the park should look and feel? This initial survey gives you a chance to share your ideas on the character of the space, potential activities, design and landscaping treatments and more.
