Why does the Ruisseau Outline Plan describe this site as a park?

The site is designated in the Ruisseau Outline Plan as Municipal Reserve, which is provided by the developer as public land under Division 8 of the Municipal Government Act. Under Section 671(2) of the Act, Municipal Reserve may be used as a public park or recreation area, or for school board purposes. Therefore, a formal amendment to the Municipal Reserve designation is not required to support a school on the site. This site is to be laid out in a way that reflects the Outline Plan’s direction to provide programmable space for sports fields and enhance neighbourhood access to Four Seasons Park.
