Seems like a much more compact and more sustainable plan. Again, could this be used a possible blueprint for a future Olympic bid?


The Olympic plan would have to be much more compact with most of the other venues moving to downtown,

The Caledon Equesrian Park (in Palgrave) was the first stand alone venue announced. It will seat about 3,500 seats and is about 40-50 minutes away from the athletes village. The cross country portion will be held nearby at the Will o Wind Farm in Mono

The new venue plans looks good but yeah, like intoronto said, the Olympic venue layout will definitely be more compact. A lot of the sports that are being held outside of Toronto proper could easily be held in the city for the Pan Am Games. The only reason they were given to those nearby cities is because they had to please the Greater Toronto Area since they tagged these games the "Golden Horseshoe" games when they were bidding for them.

And here's an update on the West Don Lands development

Forgot to mention Rugby sevens will also be held here at the stadium. Just a 2-5 minute walk north is the training facility for athletics: The Metro Toronto Track and Field Centre.
