City hall is looking at creating a “one-of-a-kind” park for pollinators – including bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and moths – as part of its plans for turning the former Eastview landfill site into a big community park.
“It’s going to be one of a kind. It will be the first in the world of its size,” said Coun. Vicki Beard.
University of Guelph landscape architecture students have already come up with some ideas and concepts for a pollinator park, it says.
Beard said such a park would have a big educational component, and the University of Guelph would be able to do research there
