I like Concept B - But with the changes I made in my Comments.Oakville's Heritage should be kept in mind with few or no steps for easy usage
Oakville's Heritage should be kept in mind with graduated or no steps for easy usage . Oakville is a 4 season Town so why not have a skating rink in the centre which converts to play gathering space in other seasons. Toronto accomplished this so why can't Oakville. This Area could also be used for band concerts on various occassions. No patterned concrete looks too busy. What about up kept during the 4 Seasons. Should have lots of permanent sitting areas. Lots of lighting which should be kept in line with our heritage. The Town sometimes forgets that Oakville resident ages range of infants to Older Adults. Recent surveys have shown that we can Expect a 70% increase in the age group 65-100 over the next 5 years. After all 80 is the new 70 and 90 is the new 100.
