If you’re planning to propose to your sweetheart, this new green space is the place to do it
Landscape architect Claude Cormier + Associés’ competition-winning scheme for York Street Park – a new green space set to replace a spiral Gardiner Expressway off-ramp – includes an illuminated heart suspended high above the common. Hence its informal name, Love Park.
Following in the paw prints of Berczy Park, the Montreal firm has devised a series of whimsical follies reflective of a new theme: love. Think heart-shaped reflecting pool and a mirrored stainless-steel arcade with a crimson centre.
