Media Advisory - Waterfront Toronto Unveils Design For Underpass Park - First
Park of Its Kind to be Built in Toronto

TORONTO, March 8 /CNW/ - Members of the media are invited to a design briefing to learn details about Underpass Park, the most extensive park to be built under an overpass in Canada, and the first ever in Toronto. Located in the West Don Lands, adjacent to the future home of the Athletes' Village for the 2015 Pan Am Games, Underpass Park will begin construction this spring and will open in early 2011.

Underpass Park, an innovative space under the Eastern and Richmond/Adelaide overpasses, is the first park to be built in the new West Don Lands community. The project, designed by renowned Vancouver landscape architects Phillips, Farevaag Smallenberg in association with The Planning Partnership, will transform a derelict area and underused space into a bright, new, urban neighbourhood amenity and key pedestrian connection and passageway.
