Western’s campus landscape shapes its public image, approach to education and research and its physical growth. Following the development and approval of Western’s Campus Master Plan in 2015, work began on the complementary Open Space Strategy. Our beautiful campus is one of our most significant assets and this strategy is required to ensure that our outdoor spaces continue to evolve following a comprehensive vision.
The Open Space Strategy builds on the natural beauty of Western’s campus and legacy of landscape stewardship to deliver a safe and beautiful campus that will foster learning and promote Western as a destination of choice for world class education and research.
The strategy proposes 10 key initiatives that will help transform campus in the coming years. Some could begin in the near future and others will be longer-term projects. For example, the Open Space Strategy includes several ways to make Western’s campus a pedestrian-priority space.
