There’s been a lot of talk recently about the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park in Ottawa’s Glebe neighbourhood. This trendy walking district is located just south of Centretown and the downtown core, and is a popular area to live for students, young professionals, and families. Lansdowne has long been a landmark in the community, hosting sporting events, exhibitions, events, and more since its original development in the mid-19th century. This historic park is a primary feature of the Glebe, a neighbourhood well-loved for its long history in Ottawa and strong sense of community.
Lansdowne Development a Hot Topic in the Glebe
The controversial redevelopment has been a hot topic of conversation not only for Glebe residents, but also for those living in surrounding neighbourhoods like Old Ottawa South, Old Ottawa East, and the Golden Triangle. In 2014 the TD Place stadium and arena will officially open its doors to the public, and while some Ottawa residents worry that the new Lansdowne Park will hurt small businesses in the area and bring unwanted heavy traffic to the quiet neighbourhood, others agree that the development will bring a positive impact to the Glebe community.
In addition to the unveiling of the new stadium, the reinvented Lansdowne Park will feature a commercial shopping complex, a skating rink, residential space in two new condominium towers, and an improved urban park to maintain a balance of natural green space. Due to the park’s location along the Rideau Canal, a World Heritage Site, these efforts are being made to integrate the redeveloped Lansdowne Park with the atmosphere of the existing community. The new businesses and condos, in addition to the many events planned for the park, are expected to bring a refreshed energy to Lansdowne and to the rest of the Glebe.
