York Street Park


York Street Park

York Street Park will be important for a “growing daytime population of office workers, and bustling clouds who frequent the waterfront for recreation and leisure,” according to the York and Rees Streets Parks Design Competition website.

The York Street Park is located at the foot of York Street and includes 8,000 square metres — 2 acres — of prime land between the Financial District and the York Quay residential area. You might remember the removal of the off-ramp at the Gardiner Expressway. As painful as that was, the upside is a fantastic new green space with water features, architectural pavilion, dog park, and paths and benches.


Rees Street Park



Rees Steet Park

The design for Rees Street Park should stitch together a series of disconnected spaces on the north side of Queens Quay using a combination of fun recreational uses for kids and adults who want to relax, meet-up with friends and family, and play together. It should support spontaneous, and unprogrammed year-round activities focused on community-building, play, innovation, and activity.
