So, uhm... What happened in that timelapse? Seems like they just moved a bunch of dirt around and built a 10 ft' wall.

If you've got the time, the virtual tour on the construction is really interesting.

The other virtual tour about the sustainability aspects of the park is also worth your time. Both are on the Waterloo Greenway Instagram IGTV section
