Chapel Hill Park and Ride – Project Vision & Description

The City of Ottawa is designing and constructing a new Park and Ride facility at Navan Road and Brian Coburn Boulevard. Chapel Hill Park and Ride is identified as an ‘interim’ facility, with plans for the site to be integrated into future phases of Bus Rapid Transit development. Currently, it is expected that the earliest any changes will be made to the facility will be in 2032, therefore the public artwork that is installed as part of this opportunity will be deemed to be temporary for approximately 13 years. Towards the end of the lifespan of the Park and Ride, the future of the installed artwork will be determined depending on a variety of factors including the proposed changes to the site, the condition of the artwork, etc.
