The event will feature performances by choreographer CORPUS, live music, artists, historical re-enactments and activities for children.

Date: Wednesday, June 28
Time: 3 to 7 p.m. (official remarks begin at 5 p.m.)

Berczy Park is a 3,606-square-metre park designed by renowned landscape architects from Claude Cormier & Associés that features a unique two-tiered fountain surrounded by 27 metal dogs, each spraying water from their mouths. The fountain is positioned in the central plaza with granite mosaic paving, wider sidewalks, grassy berms, garden beds and new trees planted in state-of-the-art Silva Cell growing chambers.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. In 2017, Toronto will honour Canada's 150th birthday with "TO Canada with Love," a year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions.
