Residents of South Portage are likely in agreement with Mayor Katz’s statement yesterday at the opening of the new park. That is not to dismiss the fact that it has taken years of walking around dangerous construction, inconvenient to those of us who live in any of the apartment high-rises between Donald and Smith.
But the fact of the matter is – for future generations of downtown residents, this new innovative park and green space is sure to be celebrated, and it’s delays soon to be forgotten.
