After at least 2 years worth of work it appears that the renos are completed at Central Memorial Park.
They will be having a grand re-opening on Friday, May 14th starting at 5pm.
I'm hoping to go down either Friday evening or Saturday (weather permitting) to check out the new landscaping and parkspace.
Some highlights of the renovated park:
-An amazing new year-round restaurant called Boxwood - where you can find everything from snacks to go to fine dining morning noon, night and weekends in this glorious park setting. http://boxwoodcafe.ca/
-Outdoor reading rooms with wireless Internet
-Modern lighting features to focus on monuments and the library as well as providing an improved safety element
-Public restroom facilities
-A level performance stage where festival events will take place
-Edwardian garden design with plenty of spots to sit and truly soak it all in
-The Memorial Park Library - lovely as ever
The Cenotaph Plaza, flagpole and commemorative monuments
-Statue of R.L. Boyle on his horse
