Here are some views of the stadium at Lansdowne Park. I still believe the gang of developers (henceforth known as The Cabal) who pretty much stole this land have ended up creating an ugly retail and condo monstrosity at Lansdowne.
Before the stadium was radically overhauled, it was named Frank Clair Stadium in honour of a CFL football coach with a good record. In this era of corporate naming rights, the place got renamed TD Place, and as for Mr. Clair? Well, he got relegated to a statue in a little corner almost as an afterthought.
On the south side of the stadium there's a pathway between the structure itself and the large wooden screen wrapped around it. In the original plans, The Cabal made no mention of the big giant lit sign hanging on the screen as an ad for TD Bank.
On the far side of the stadium and on a hilltop is this sculpture. I have no idea what it means, but it's not as obnoxious as the train wreck The Cabal made of Lansdowne. It overlooks a stretch of parkland- one of the only real public areas of the property, and it offers a good view of the Rideau Canal. Tomorrow I'll have a look at another portion of Lansdowne- the only buildings on the property that are worthwhile.
