Rail Deck park is the closest we'll get to a big park downtown (21 acres) but overall Toronto easily beats both NY and London when it comes to parkland/nature. It's not a close call imo.
What is this National Park designation? Who would be giving out the designation?
This has always been my point, too. High Park is not far from downtown and as I said earlier it is no farther from the CBD than Central Park in NYC or Hyde Park in London. Big cities normally do not have massive parks in their Central Business core. High Park is big; only half as big as Central Park but bigger than Hyde Park.
What would you like to see done with the Don Valley super park? Do you think some of the transportation corridors need to be re-located for it to work?
Now they should just close down Billy Bishop Airport, it's messing up lively/green waterfront image. It's just too industrial and noisy...
Looks like I'm busted. Sorry but I couldn't resist. The photo is from the National Post (so I credited it) but the rest I wrote myself to look like a newspaper article. I found the conceptual drawings online with the CN Tower in the right place so it looked like the airport site.
Not gormless. More like having an interest in actual good urban planning that made people wish that the post was true.One has to wonder how gormless one must be to fall for this April Foolery.
