I am spending a few posts at Lansdowne Park, and I'll be ranting and venting whilst here. Aside from a New Year's Eve visit, it has been a long while since I've photographed the place. OSEG (Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group), the group of real estate developers that pretty much got the place handed to them for their own benefit for the remainder of their natural lives (thanks a lot, city council) has been busy here, with most of the construction nearly done. Is it obvious I really dislike the fact that these swindlers pretty much stole what could have been so much better out from under the city? By the way, if OSEG happens to see this: from the bottom of my heart, I'll say it once again- middle finger fully extended at the lot of you no-good underhanded double-dealing crooks. If you guys were on fire, and I had a glass of water, I'd drink it.
Anyway, to start things off, we have one of the three things about the whole development that they got right. A portion of the place has been set aside as an actual park (go figure). While the skateboarding area and the playground are dormant this time of year, the skating rink is open. For those who might be peckish, a Beavertail hut is at the far end, along with another establishment.
