Waterfront Parks Design Competition Entries Now On Display at City Hall

Back in February 2018, the City of Toronto and Waterfront Toronto launched an innovative design competition for two new waterfront parks. We invited talented and creative design teams from around the world to pre-qualify for the competition that would seek bold design proposals for Toronto’s York Street Park and Rees Street Park.

In total, more than 40 design teams from 18 cities submitted proposals outlining their qualifications. We were thrilled to see such a high-level of interest from some of the world’s most innovative and creative design teams, representing a wide range of different landscape and design philosophies. Ten design teams were shortlisted to participate in the six-week international design competition.

Five teams were assigned to each park and their entries can be viewed right now online and in the City Hall rotunda until July 17 at 5 PM. Visit http://yorkreesparkdesign.ca/ to see each entry and provide comments or suggestions to help inform the choice of winner. You can also leave written comments in person at City Hall while the entries are on display.
