WATCH: Sneak peek of Ontario Place revamp

Preliminary plans for part of an urban park revealed

The province is giving you a sneak peek of what Ontario Place may look like in a couple of years.

It's unveiled preliminary plans for the eastern part of the land, which includes a pebble beach, walking and cycling trails, wooded areas, and a huge area of open space.

The design firm behind the plans also proposes to have sculptures of what could been seen as Lake Ontario 'monsters' and large rocks that kids can climb on and anyone can sit on.

The goal is to make it family-friendly and be able to tie-in to whatever else is done to Ontario Place just west of this urban parkland.

Despite hoping to get everything done by the Pan Am Games in 2015, the province is still in the design and consultation process, meaning there are no shovels in the ground.

The province will not reveal total budget for this portion of the project until its signed contracts with developers.
