A New Park Pays Tribute to Toronto’s Lost Waterways

Thoughtful landscaping evokes urban history

By Eric Mutrie

Thanks to landscape architects Sheila Boudreau and Schollen & Company, a new green space near Dundas East and Coxwell Avenue will impress come sleet or shine. Named Raindrop Plaza, the community space features a ground-surface artwork designed by local schoolchildren, curved ledgerock seating walls and a winding urban creek bed commemorating the city’s lost rivers. Trench drains and catch basins channel and store rainwater, which reduces neighbourhood flooding.
