A Fort York-Adjacent Park Looks to Both Past and Present


A retro-inspired scheme designed to serve a new community

To imagine Mouth of the Creek Park, Public Work took in the area’s surroundings: Fort York’s historic grounds to the left and the soaring modern towers of CityPlace to the right. The firm’s solution reshapes the site, located at Bathurst Street and Fort York Boulevard, into a sloped promontory that reflects what existed back when the site sat at Toronto’s shoreline. Elevated lookouts offer a vantage point for taking Instagram-worthy shots of the city skyline, while the sheltered base is perfect for summer movie screenings.
