There are water parks around the world that operated in the snows of winter.I'm worried! My thoughts are that Ford will do as little as possible and this will not turn out to be a major attraction for the city. It will probably end up being passive parkland that is used as an event space for festivals, much as it does now but probably on a larger scale. This is NOT what I want. I want the world's fair vibe the old Ontario Place had but on a much bigger scale, with top notch attractions and for it to operate year round with a large enclosed space for Winter use. It needs serious investment money and Ford is not the kind of guy who wants to invest in Ontario. Like most politicians, he only thinks short term.
This area already has passive parkland just east and west of this location. Ontario Place needs to be an urban park that has the potential to be much more than trees, grass and a beach. We already have these things and just a short walk from here. We need people with ambition running this place, not small minds like Doug Ford.
The pools at Caribbean Bay in South Korea maintain temperatures above 30°C so that guests never have to worry about feeling too chilly.
Parts are indoors...
But, of course, having "fun" in Toronto is frowned upon.
