As a former resident of Flemingdon Park the news of the potential relocation of the Ontario Science Centre has left me concerned. Growing up here, the Science Centre was an integral part of my life, offering endless oppourtunities for learning, inspiration and fun (maybe some antics – 🙄). It’s disheartening to learn that the proposed new location at Ontario Place will be smaller and will result in the loss of numerous exhibits and features.

I believe that the Ontario Science Centre should remain in its current location, preserving its vast offerings and maintaining its invaluable impact on the community.

The Value of the Ontario Science Centre

The Ontario Science Centre holds a special place in the hearts of Flemingdon Park residents. It has served as a beacon of knowledge and exploration, fostering a love for science and discovery. However, the prospect of its relocation to Ontario Place raises concerns. The smaller size of the new location suggests that the Centre will have to downsize its exhibits and features, compromising the rich experience it currently provides. It is disconcerting to think that future generations may miss out on immersive programs that have captivated and educated many for years.

Preserving the Ontario Science Centre: Enhancing Development Oppourtunities in Flemingdon Park

The Ontario Science Centre’s potential move to a smaller space at Ontario Place not only jeopardizes its current offerings but also poses risks; possibly impacting on the community in unknown ways. It should be a thriving hub of knowledge and wonder right in the heart of the community. Instead of contemplating the relocation of the Ontario Science Centre, let us consider a different approach that embraces the development potential surrounding this cherished institution. By thinking outside the box and exploring innovative strategies, we have the oppourtunity to enhance the Science Centre’s surroundings, creating a vibrant and dynamic environment that complements its mission.

In uncertain times like these, it is disheartening to contemplate the potential loss of the Ontario Science Centre’s current location and the impact it may have on the community. However, amidst this distress, we can only hope that the collective voice of the residents will be heard, and the decision-makers will recognize the immense value and irreplaceable benefits that the Science Centre brings.
