Location

The subject site is municipally known as 324-326 Lett Street, 585-587 Wellington Steet and 21 Fleet Street in Somerset Ward (14). It is more specifically located in the eastern portion of the LeBreton Flats and is fronting Lett Street on the south side. The site is mainly vacant with a multi-use pathway running on its southern portion. Two branches of the aqueduct are running underneath the future park.

Councillor Troster’s Office along with the City of Ottawa’s Recreational, Cultural and Facility Planning Department would like to hear your thoughts on the proposed new park.
