See What was found beneath the south side stands
In 2008, the City of Ottawa began demolition of the south-side Grandstand at Lansdowne Park. After the dust settled, workers were astounded to discover a hidden world under the debris. A team was called in to investigate. They excavated an untarnished lumber site from more than a century prior.
Then they made a disturbing discovery… a lost colony of Millworkers from early Bytown days who have not had outside contact for more than a century.
In October 2021, this colony will be opened up to the public for the first time...
"We have been contracted by Lansdowne to contain the SOUTH SIDE STANDS. We're confident that by October 8th, it will be safe for the public."
