Members of the London City Council, City of London Tourism and other officials broke ground today on the new Town Center Park, which will be located next to London Elementary School.
The park will provide green space in the middle of downtown as well as a venue for concerts and events. The project is named after the Town Center Motel that used to be at that location.
The first step of the development will be the removal of blacktop on the site and some underlying utility and sewer line repair.
The project will be let for bids next month with construction to begin in late winter or early spring.
