The Lakeshore Commons Field is located on a provincial historic site, the quadrangle of the former Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital.
The project will revitalize a 835 SM community green space located between the Lakeshore Commons (Building L) and the renovated historic hospital cottages.
This outdoor space is designed to accommodate 3,000 people for recreational events, community festivals, cultural days, conferences, as well as a teaching/learning lab.
The project scope includes stage infrastructure for live performing arts, guest speakers, etc. as well as new landscaping, site furnishings, lighting, Wi-Fi, and hard surface pathways with a ramp to increase accessibility.
With support through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program/Avec l’appui du Programme d’infrastructure communautaire de Canada 150.
