RTH has written in the past about the opportunity to create a national park in the Cootes Paradise area.
With the ongoing issue surrounding an application to build a self storage garage complex in Dundas, I felt it was a good time to bring the issue up again along with this link to a recent study outlining the possibilities that exist for an Eco-Park in this area.
Imagine being able to cycle from Bayfront Park or Downtown Hamilton to a national eco-park right here in one of the nation's most densely-populated cities.
I hope the city can work out a land swap with the self-storage folks, as well as put a quick end to the ongoing rumblings of a mega-townhouse development that is still proposed for the Pleasantview lands.
This is a rare opportunity that most cities would kill for. Let's make the most of it, and preserve one of our most beautiful natural features.
