NORTH SYD­NEY — The board of di­rec­tors for the pro­posed At­lantic Me­mo­rial Park will host a com­mu­nity pre­sen­ta­tion as well as a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion.

The pre­sen­ta­tion will take place at the Joan Har­riss Cruise Pavil­ion in Syd­ney on Thurs­day, May 11 at 7 p.m. The rec­om­mended site con­sists of about 120 acres of pub­licly owned land in Syd­ney Mines.

It would also in­clude a First Na­tions replica en­camp­ment, a fam­ily park and beach and re­stored mil­i­tary for­ti­fi­ca­tions.
