DOWNTOWN EXTREME SPORTS PARK
It would appear that the moment of decision for the Downtown Extreme Sports Park (BMX Track, BMX Freestyle Park, Skatepark, etc.) has arrived. The project is to be evaluated at a meeting of Economic Development (Parks and Recreation) on Monday July 4. If the decision is in favour, construction could begin soon at Marilyn Bell Park, on the waterfront across from Exhibition Place and just west of Ontario Place. Can you help and support the efforts of Councillor Sylvia Watson? Sure. Show your support for the park at this meeting. It
