A DOWNTOWN BREATHING SPACE – THE NEW COLLEGE PARK & BARBARA ANN SCOTT ICE TRAIL

Surrounded on all sides by high rise office buildings and condominiums, the new COLLEGE PARK provides plenty of breathing and sitting-out space for downtown office workers and the thousands who live there.The city’s Forestry and Recreation Division supervised the project which includes planning and design work from RAW Design, the MBTW Group/Watchorn Architect and Project for Public Spaces (PPS).
