City seeks public input on design proposals for June Callwood Park
The City of Toronto will unveil the final submissions for the June Callwood Park International Design Competition at a public exhibition taking place October 18-21, where residents are invited to provide their comments on the design proposals. The following four design teams were short-listed to prepare an overall vision of the 0.4 hectare site, located at the foot of the historic Fort York:
• dTAH and Balmori and Associates
• gh3
• Janet Rosenberg and Associates
• PMA Landscape Architects and Ground Inc.

“The quality and diversity of the design submissions are very exciting,” said Joe Pantalone, Deputy Mayor and Councillor for Ward 19 Trinity-Spadina. “The June Callwood Park Design Competition has resulted in a number of very impressive possibilities for this distinctive part of the waterfront and will be an important part of the City’s waterfront renewal.”

Residents are invited to provide feedback on the design proposals. The exhibition will be on display at two locations:

Saturday, October 18 - 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday, October 19 - 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Location: Fort York National Historic Site, Blue Barracks, 100 Garrison Rd.
(Parking is free at the West Gate. Access driveway from Fort York Boulevard)

Monday, October 20 - 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Tuesday, October 21 - 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Location: Metro Hall Rotunda, 55 John St.

“These dynamic submissions fit perfectly with Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation’s mission to create parks and public green spaces incorporating landscaping and urban design to further enhance and draw Torontonians to June Callwood Park as well as all of our great parks,” said Brenda Patterson, General Manager, Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation. “The winning design team will create a central focus for local neighbourhood activities and community interaction. The park will also provide an excellent opportunity to improve the accessibility and visibility of Fort York and the waterfront.”

The successful design team will be announced in December with park construction scheduled to commence in 2010. For more information, visit:
