“The Belle Park Master Plan reflects the feedback and ideas received over the course of the public consultations with residents, the Indigenous community and other stakeholders,” says Neal Unsworth, manager, parks development.
The master plan being presented offers a phased approach to the long-term management of the 80-acre site, and includes increased areas for naturalization, shoreline protection measures and options for recreational activities near the clubhouse and Montreal Street.
Belle Park sits on a former landfill on the shores of the Cataraqui River – part of the UNESCO-designated Rideau Canal waterway. Plans to manage the site as a former landfill are ongoing and are not altered by the master plan.
