In July 2008, the City of Ottawa began demolition of the lower south-side Grandstand at Lansdowne Park. After the dust settled from the controlled implosion, site workers were astounded to discover a hidden world under the debris. An archeological team was called in to investigate. They excavated a complete, untarnished lumber site from more than a century prior.
They also made a disturbing discovery… A lost colony of Lumberjacks and Millworkers from early Bytown days who have not had outside contact for more than a century…. In October 2020, this colony will be opened up to the public for the first time.
Saunders Farm and the Ottawa Sports & Entertainment Group (OSEG) partner to produce new Halloween Festival at Lansdowne.
