Corktown Common

The City of Toronto's web site calls Corktown Common "a model of innovation", and provides the perfect description of the new project: "A new jewel in the landscape of the West Don Lands, Corktown Common is a 7.3 hectare (18 acre) park located at the foot of Lower River Street and Bayview Avenue. Situated on former industrial lands, the park has transformed an underutilized brownfield into a spectacular park and community meeting place featuring a lush landscape. With a marsh, sprawling lawns, urban prairies, playground areas, a splash pad and a variety of inviting features like a fireplace, permanent barbeque, large communal picnic tables and washrooms, this spectacular new greenspace is already the heart of an emerging new community".

Things were a little brown the day I visited but in a couple of weeks the green will be springing up all over the Common.
