was it ever a real spit?[edit]

It isn't a real Spit (landform), but before the landfill started, was there an actual spit there? It makes sense that there could have been one there because of the nearby sandy beaches to the east. Paradiso 23:16, 12 August 2005 (UTC)

I don't think beaches enter into it. The article you linked to explains the common features of a natural spit, but in general a spit is just a narrow strip of land that extends into open water. That said, it was definitely an actual spit once; the article itself says the spit was "Originally a long, slender finger of bare land stretching out into the lake". --Skrapion (talk) 01:39, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Dear anonymous user who moved the page,[edit]

The peninsula's official name is the Outer Harbour East Headland. Let's keep things as official as possible. Kelisi 18:00, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)

This pages needs to be moved back to "Leslie Street Spit". The usual wikipedia policy is to list things under their "actual name" rather than their "Official name", as can be viewed on other pages, for example Democratic People's Republic of Korea. 13:53, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
