In the meantime, here are a few facts I call “Parkette Math”.
You should know Ottawa’s policy on green-space is for every 300 homes, there should be 1 hectare of green-space or 2.4 acres.
There are 4 park classifications and by city definition, City View has only 2 parkettes and a strip on Bassano which is not even a parkette according to its size.
City View has approximately 1200 homes.
We should have about 40,000 sq.m. or (10 acres) total green-space.
A PARKETTE has 4-12 thousand sq. m. (1 – 2.9 acres)
Doug Frobel Parkette= 6350 sq.m. (1.6 acres)
City View Parkette = 4254.3 sq.m. (1.0 acre)
Bassano: Withrow-Rossland Strip = 878 sq. m. (0.2 acre)
So CITY VIEW has in total 11054 sq. m. of parkland/ green-space.
Or 2.8 acres which is about 28% of the green space needed for 1200 + homes!
