Some new high res renders of St. Patrick's Island Park. The entire island is being redeveloped/renaturalized as part of the redevelopment of the East Village. The 31 acre island park reopens this summer.

The final designs of Calgary West Eau Claire Park are in, and it looks outstanding. Considering how incredibly well the Riverwalk turned out, to say I'm excited doesn't even come close.

It includes Calgary's first urban beach, a 500 meter boardwalk, a cafe, a sculpture garden, outdoor exercise equipment and space, a community garden... and a lot more.















Full details here:http://www.calgary.ca/PDA/pd/Documen...nal-report.pdf







The Bow to Bluffs Park design has been finalized as well. Both parks are likely to start construction this year.

Some shots of the future Bearspaw Legacy Park. The city recently annexed this area of land in order to protect it and our drinking water and enhance our parks system. It's in the far west of the city, well into the foothills.

Are those park benches in temp locations? If not why are they lined up like that?

Nice that they're finally taking cars out of the south side of the street for good. The city was waffling on that for a long time.

The Gore Park revitalization looks incredible! We were there last summer and saw the work being done. Hopefully the whole thing is done by the time we're back this summer I remember how run down it was, so this will be a big boost to the appearance of downtown Hamilton

This year, Saskatoon is phasing out the use of its obsolete coin payment parking meters and moving to central pay stations (1 or 2 per block). The main drawback is that the parking meters have been used for decades as informal bike racks. So, the City is retrofitting many of the parking meter posts into bike racks, and a select few in the downtown and adjacent business districts into a "pedestrian amenity station," which will include a table-top with cupholder and hook for a bike helmet/bag/etc., as well as a fold-down seat.

It's definitely an out of the box idea. I'm interested to see the kind of use these things get...

New bike racks were also just installed this spring in the Broadway area, a stylized B:

Here's some photos of East Hamilton-Stoney Creek's new waterfront park that was built between Green Road & Millen Road (Click here to go to the location in Google Street View). There is now a +500m dedication of public shoreline from Green to Millen and a 4.88ha (12ac) protected ESA (Environmentally Sensitive Area):

As you probably already know (since I've posted several pictures before), the Magog river (as well as our beloved Lac des Nations) has seen its banks undergo major changes over the last decade. Unfortunately, a major gap remains (see here) in what may be one of the most interesting areas of the gorge. It might however change quite soon since Destination Sherbrooke plans to remedy this issue soon. A >80m-high observation tower would also be built.

Google Streetview in Iqaluit? I can't wait to (finally) explore this remote part of the country.

Work has began on the Pier 7 and 8 redevelopment in Hamilton. I'm really excited for this project, more-so than the Gore Park redevelopment.
