A First Look at Plans for a Revitalized Ontario Place


Down at the waterfront, the province embarks on a new era of place-making

LANDinc and West 8 team up for the first phase of Ontario Place’s revitalization, which includes an urban park and waterfront trail. The landscape is set to be made over with a new bank of boulders, a sloped summit lookout and a fire pit along a rocky stretch of beach. All offer a spectacular view of the city’s skyline, which has changed considerably since the theme-park opened in 1971.
