The Urban Park at Louis Street

The conceptual design of the Urban Park has been revised to incorporate the former Shish-Kabob Hut property at 220 King Street.  The building will be removed to make way for the construction of a mixed-use building that will include the space necessary in support of the park, such as public washrooms, a changeroom, zamboni garage, storage, and a small office for a park attendant.  

The current plan also incorporates input received by the public, City departments, and stakeholders. Council has recently approved the Conceptual Design for the Urban Park. A Design Booklet provides further analysis and background information in support of the conceptual design.

Construction of the Urban Park is scheduled to begin in November 2017 and should conclude in the first quarter of 2019.

The Charlotte Street Renewal project is a future phase of the Urban Park project.  Many of the same treatments in the Urban Park design are included in the Charlotte Street Conceptual Design. To better accommodate pedestrians and large events, such as New Years Eve and Canada Day celebrations, Charlotte Street may be closed between Aylmer Street and George Street.

The renewal of Charlotte Street between Aylmer Street and Water Street is part of the Urban Park at Louis Street Project and is a key strategy of the Central Area Master Plan. The strategy seeks to create a permanent public gathering place in the Downtown for the benefit of the entire community.
