What’s Out There: A Database of Local Landscapes


A new database educates Torontonians about the city’s wealth of world-class parks, plazas and gardens

The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s recently-launched database of local landscape projects identifies each space’s designer and style, helpfully illustrating the difference between the playful postmodernism of Yorkville Park’s 600-ton rock fragment and the picturesque plantings at High Park. Among the 80-plus locations profiled are a few hidden gems, including Guild Park and Gardens (shown above), a Scarborough sanctuary filled with architectural elements salvaged from razed Toronto buildings.
