    Be thankful.

    If it had been done during a boom economy, it would have cost 6 million.

      Moreover, it really is a case of putting lipstick on a pig. We need more of this thinking.

      As one of my favourite quotes goes: If you have a skeleton in your closet, you might as well teach it to dance.

        Looks very uh, functional. Sort of like a dog run. Another opportunity to do something special is lost.

          Would always be nice to go beyond the basics but like what?

          Also the view is the prime attraction.

            A funicular? A first for our city...

            Just like the other three.

The seed money to allow the private development of a needed urban transit project. Where is the common sense?
              Now that's something I could get behind. Open the Cold War bunker as a tourist attraction. That's a cool piece of Edmonton history that could be put to good use.

                  From what I glimpsed on the news tonight, it looks like they've done a tidy job on it.

                      I've seen it in person. Definitely well done. Doesn't stop the stoner kids from using it though, but I guess that's the new normal in Canada.

                        Been a few time now love how it turned out. but they do need to pick up the crap below. Old shopping carts and traffic markers.

                        Also have ridden my bike below a few time, pretty good trails.
