Designs for our new Berczy Park continue to draw praise from park-lovers and urban planners following a presentation of Claude Cormier’s whimsical Berczy plans at a recent TO parks conference.

View a recent BlogTO commentary on the new park, visit the designer’s website to see more images and an animation video of the  new Berczy ParkBerczy Park Board LR, and view the adjacent Friends of Berczy Park poster for highlights.

It also seems the City  is on track to award the construction contract for the Berczy improvements and adjacent streetscapes. The contract is expected to start on September 8, 2015 and end by June 15, 2016.
