Its a perfect day in the neighbourhood!
A variety of Mimico residents, politicians and local activists are celebrating the opening of Phase 1 of Mimico’s new waterfront park until 5pm today. Several acres of park (recent landfill) and boardwalk are now officially open after two years of construction.
Although no money is yet earmarked for Phase 2 of the waterfront project, apparently the primary obstacle is not, money to do the construction but rather, two property owners who are unwilling to sell or otherwise allow the city to connect the paths and park land that Phase 2 requires. Hopefully these owners will seek to ingratiate themselves with Torontonians rather than force them to raise some exorbitant fee to expropriate these lands.
