Already registering as a landmark before the fences came down in the last few weeks, Berczy Park is officially reopening on Wednesday, June 28. To celebrate, there's a party to mark the completion of work on this remarkably reimagined space between Front and Wellington Streets a block east of Yonge. The City of Toronto, the St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood BIA, and the Friends of Berczy Park are throwing a bash from 3 PM to 7 PM, with a raft of entertainment that will be fun for both children and adults. If you don't want to miss the speeches and ribbon cutting, that takes place starting at 5 PM.
Following the ribbon cutting, UrbanToronto is holding a meet-up at the Flatiron and Firkin, 49 Wellington Street East, from 5:30 PM onwards. (The Firkin is just at the east end of the park at the base of the Flatiron building; just ask for the UrbanToronto reservation when you get to the door!) Besides giving you a chance to meet people who share your interest in seeing Toronto grow in smart ways, you'll have a chance to meet Berczy Park designers Claude Cormier and Marc Hallé and other special guests. We hope we will see you there!
If you want to get a better look at Berczy Park, our Database file, linked below, includes renderings, while the associated Forum thread has plenty of photography, from before the construction started, and right on up to the moment.
