The children's play area at Lansdowne Park, which includes a play structure and skateboard ramps, has reopened to the public after a two-week delay.

The city said in a news release Friday that a rubberized surface has been installed to provide a safer and more accessible play space for children, parents and caregivers. The installation had been delayed due to inclement weather.

The public can access Lansdowne Park from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily via Queen Elizabeth Driveway. Except during major events, the Bank Street entrance is restricted to construction crews and related construction traffic.

Pedestrians and cyclists travelling through Lansdowne Park are asked to use caution as construction continues until late fall.
