Landsdown Park is in the middle of Ottawa. It's right on the canal and holds events like the Ex, farmers' markets, craft shows, and various other public events. When Ottawa had a football team, this is where they played.
Anyway, the lower south side stands were in bad shape and needed to be removed. (The upper south side stands were OK.) Today was the day for imploding the lower stands, so I watched the implosion live over the internet. It was interesting - I could actually see the charges go off one at a time.
I'm not sure how the link is going to appear once they stop broadcasting live, but here it is: http://www.ottawa.ca/online_services/lansdowne_demo/english/index.html
