Huge New Public Green Space Coming to Toronto’s Waterfront

Published on : Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Ontario logoThe province is proceeding with planning and design work for a huge new green space on Toronto’s waterfront as it moves ahead with the transformation of Ontario Place into a vibrant, public, year-round waterfront destination.

 

As part of the broader revitalization of Ontario Place the province is seeking a design consultant for a Celebration Common on the East Island of Ontario Place. The almost 20-acre proposed Celebration Common, approximately the size of 14 football fields, would be a flexible green space for open-air cultural activities, festivals, community events and recreation in downtown Toronto.

 

The Celebration Common would connect Ontario Place’s West Island, the new Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail and the recently reopened Cinesphere through a system of pedestrian and bike trails. Transforming the East Island of Ontario Place into a year-round, public destination would create a cultural and recreational destination for people in Ontario, welcome visitors from around the world and boost the local economy.

 

Planning a vibrant waterfront destination is part of Ontario’s plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
