Huh. Ive been going the last 2 summers and its been absolutely packed.

I think you're confusing organized festivals using the park with people actually using the park.

Also there were 18,000 people at copps last night.

^In my experience, it's better to just ignore realcity. He's been dropping golden truth nuggets like that for more than a decade. He's obsessed with skyscrapers and casinos and everything else is $hite.

I'm confident in saying that he's never contributed anything of any worth to this forum - DO NOT ENGAGE.

For recreation, Bayfront Park is right around the corner, and Victoria Park isn't far in the other direction.
Between Barton and Stuart there is literally nothing. Central Park is being redone and there are BIG plans for the area.

Don't quote me but I think I recall a moratorium on events because of wear and tear on the grounds.

I agree, the paths are always filled with people - the beach not so much. Plus there's always people fishing.

There was a Beer Fest there last summer, so if there was a moratorium, it's been lifted.

and I believe that Hamilton Pride also hosts their event in that area... but besides the events that are held there the area always has people strolling and family picnics etc. I dont think having big events there on a regular basis is a good idea for that particular park... it would disrupt the beauty and the peaceful atmosphere

I do believe you've violated Rule #1 regarding Beerfest.

That's an error on BBH's part. That development is up at Rymal and Stone Church, I believe.

From a Hamilton Health Sciences blog post this week:

IMAGINING A NEW HOSPITAL IN A NEW LOCATION

By Dr. Peter Fitzgerald, President, McMaster Children’s Hospital

As any parent knows, kids grow up fast. One minute you’re snapping them into a onesie and the next, they’re asking for the car keys.

I often get the same feeling about our McMaster Children’s Hospital. It seems like yesterday we were celebrating an official designation as Ontario’s newest children’s hospital; now, our 30th anniversary is only a year away. And talk about growing before your eyes: We are the fastest-growing of any children’s hospital in the province and are now second only to the Hospital for Sick Children in size (for number of patients and level of acuity).

During the last five years at our Children’s Hospital, we’ve seen an overall 25 per cent growth in inpatient activity, with a particular growth spurt in the Emergency Department (ED), where the number of visits ballooned by 120 per cent. The McMaster Children’s Hospital ED is now the busiest in our HHS family of hospitals.

As busy as we are today, we’re also thinking ahead to how we’ll serve the next generation of children and youth. Over the last two years we’ve been working on a long-range plan for all of Hamilton Health Sciences, called Our Healthy Future. The plan forecasts the services we’ll provide, and the facilities we’ll need, over the next 20 years.

“It seems like yesterday we were celebrating an official designation as Ontario’s newest children’s hospital; now, our 30th anniversary is only a year away.”
We have a bold and exciting vision for McMaster Children’s Hospital. Over the next 20 years we will see an increase of 1.2 million children in Canada, which equals the current population of Manitoba! So we know the growth we’ve seen will continue as the population of Hamilton and surrounding areas continues to rise. Although our services are by no means limited to inpatient care, let’s look at our projected bed counts as a simple example of predicted growth: today we have 161 Children’s Hospital beds and in 20 years we expect to need 231.

So, when we look down the road, we envision a new facility that is designed specifically for the needs of children and their families, and including women’s health services such as our high-risk obstetrics program. We see this new facility being located adjacent to the Hamilton General Hospital campus.

McMaster Children’s Hospital, emergency department, childrens healthcare, mcmaster university medical centre, hamilton ontario, community, hamilton general hospital, our healthy future, dr. peter fitzgeraldThere are many reasons why this location would be ideal – expectant mothers who need acute care services will have them immediately at hand, while children and their parents will benefit from close proximity to our beautiful new Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre, with its extensive list of outpatient programs for children and youth with special needs.

“Best of all, we’ll have room to grow and develop.”
Best of all, we’ll have room to grow and develop. Our current location at McMaster University Medical Centre, where we share space with the university, just can’t handle the long term needs we foresee. I’m excited about our vision for the future of our Children’s Hospital and I look forward to sharing more information as planning continues.

WE ENVISION A NEW CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL TO MEET OUR COMMUNITY’S NEEDS – ONE DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR KIDS AND THEIR FAMILIES.

The City council will likely vote for a giant parking garage. You can never have too much parking in downtown Hamilton.

Several floors of the new Vrancor development 22 George are being dedicated to municipal parking so that might sway them to ease up on the parking requirements in the RFP.

We'll have to wait and see.
