Looked like this a a year ago
In fact, the official opening is tomorrow, when all the city's bigwigs descend on my neighbourhood.
From the press release:
- The HTO design team, led by Janet Rosenberg, Claude Cormier and Siamak Hariri, collaborated with city staff to create HTO Park. The outstanding park design was selected following an international design competition, undertaken by the City in 2003. Somerville Construction provided skill and workmanship in rounding out the project team's achievement of a dynamic and beautiful waterfront park.
Brenda Librecz will present a waterfront park scrapbook for the mayor, councillors, architects and ceremony attendees to sign. A class of local school children will place items, reflecting their thoughts and ideas about the City’s waterfront, in a time capsule at the park. The time capsule will be reopened at a ceremony in 2020.
Wonder what they're putting in there? I'd like to see a pair of running shoes...
