Public Consultation on the Plan for the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway Waterfront Linear Park
The National Capital Commission (NCC) invites you to attend a public workshop on the draft plan for the proposed Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway waterfront linear park.

The purpose of this third public workshop is to seek the public’s input on the updated draft concept for the overall park, as well as the more detailed draft concept for the section of the park between Westboro Beach and the proposed Cleary light rail transit station. Some of the key ideas that will be presented include the following:

Creation of better connectivity from local neighbourhoods to the shore with three new, at-grade signalized crossings
Development of three to six animation nodes at strategic sites to provide a variety of amenities for park users
Ecological restoration of the shore habitat
Proposal to better highlight the aquatic habitat with the construction of a boardwalk
Opportunity to comment on two parkway alignment options to facilitate mobility for all transportation modes and provide more park space on the river
The format of the event is a roaming workshop. Each segment of the waterfront linear park will be presented at a station, and participants will be free to visit the various stations and fill out a questionnaire.
