City pushed to expropriate land for downtown Edmonton park
Chris Buyze says he got his Christmas wish early, after learning city administration is pushing hard for a new downtown park.
Administration is set to recommend council approve expropriating land for a public park in the so-called Warehouse district, when they deliver a report to council on Wednesday.
Buyze, the president of the Downtown Edmonton Community League, couldn't be happier.
The potential park would be located near Jasper Avenue and 106 Street, which is currently a surface parking lot about 1.25 hectares in size.
The park was part of the city’s capital downtown plan released in 2010.
