A whole new world is coming to the east side of downtown Toronto this year as Don River Park nears completion. Today's Photo Of The Day, taken by UrbanToronto Forum member rdaner, shows the nearly completed River Square.

River Square will connect Underpass Park, located under the Eastern Avenue Bridge, to Don River Park which will be located south and east of the newly reconstructed Bayview Avenue. Here's a look at the plan by Waterfront Toronto which is developing the project.

As you can see from the plan major changes are coming to this former industrial, though in recent years vacant, part of Toronto. The new Bayview Avenue is set to open in the next few months followed by the park which was designed by New York's Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates. UrbanToronto is happy to see this progress taking place.
