Mouth-of-the-Creek Park

Landscape Architecture, Visualization

Mouth of the Creek Park is a 1.3 acre park planned for Toronto's downtown Fort York district.

Restoring the landscape to its original shape as a promontory opposite Fort York and separated in the lowlands by the Garrison Creek, the park integrates history and landscape to create a multi-use public space. With an open view towards Fort York under the Bathurst St. Bridge, the area under the bridge is activated as an artistic zone for installations. Meadow grasses in the marshy lowlands provide habitat for urban wildlife and encourages rainwater filtration.

The park is a compact, yet highly programmable urban public space amidst the surrounding development.
