Putting the New Orchard LRT station through Byron Linear Park would make the Woodpark community not only “woodless” but “parkless” as well, say its members.

Larry Ladell, chair of the transportation committee of the Woodpark Community Association became aware of the proposal to locate the station south of Richmond Road – in the Byron Linear Park – between Woodland and Harcourt Avenue at a June 4 open house.
