Lansdowne Park is a 40-acre (16 ha) historic sports, exhibition and entertainment facility in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, owned by the City of Ottawa. It is located along Bank Street and is adjacent to the Rideau Canal, in central Ottawa. Lansdowne Park contains the TD Place stadium/arena complex, (formerly Frank Clair Stadium and the Ottawa Civic Centre arena, the stadium being integrated with the arena), the Aberdeen Pavilion hall, and other exhibition buildings. Until 2010, the Park was the site of the annual Central Canada Exhibition (Ottawa SuperEX). The site is currently being redeveloped. Around the arena and stadium complex is a retail and residential redevelopment. Along the Rideau Canal, the open space which was formerly parking is being converted into an urban park with some recreation facilities.
