CityPlace park gets ‘canoe’ name

Dennis Hanagan–

It probably comes as no surprise that the new community centre slated for the CityPlace neighbourhood next to Canoe Landing Park will be named Canoe Landing Community Centre. Community council okayed the name based on a recommendation from the Parks, Forestry and Recreation department. The new centre will include public and Catholic schools from kindergarten to Grade 8, a gym, year-round market space and a city-run, not-for-profit day care. Construction is scheduled to start in 2017 with completion set for 2019. The centre has been designed to integrate with the recreational use of Canoe Landing Park.
