Conceived by the Montreal firm specialized in landscape architecture and urban design Claude Cormier + Associés, the romantic Love Park urban project, selected by the city of Toronto last fall, will soon replace the actual York Street Park.
This small city park will stand out with its heart-shaped water basin and urban facilities that will transform this green space into a real oasis in the heart of the city, and very close to Lake Ontario. Love Park promises to be inviting, inspiring and pleasant. «Skylines of sameness are mushrooming around the world. Love Park in Toronto is a deliberate effort to break from the grid and assert an open space character that reinforces Toronto’s evolving landscape specificity while introducing a unique signature that expresses the spirit of the city», says the firm. Construction is expected to start in 2019.
