    My comment is valid for all three options for sadly, I don’t think we’re achieving anything spectacular with that space. All these bits and pieces feel disunited and seem to have been thrown like dice on a board game to please all the stakeholders. Everything look disconnected with the paths and green space, an afterthought.

    The park space proposed is puny to the point of being ridiculous. Surely the town doesn’t need more tax dollars from more housing? Why do we need to build more, and there?

    We have an opportunity to create a long lasting vision with this space, for generations to come. Rarely do we come across an opportunity to create a true community space, in the middle of a built-up town. Let’s do this right.

    I can think of a dozen space usages within an urban park for all to enjoy. Think Central Park or Bryant Park in New York. Closer to home, Mount Royal in Montreal, Stanley Park in Vancouver or High Park in Toronto. What these parks share in common is that they are a destination, they serve multi-purposes for all generation throughout the year, people just go there to hang out and they’re the pride of their city. Imagine Oakville, the most livable town, with an amazing, functional urban park that’s bigger than 0.78/1.39/1.0 acres. Imagine that! What do you want to see in an urban park for Oakville?
