Event description

Description

The David Crombie Park Revitalization Design project will develop a comprehensive conceptual design and implementation plan for improvements to the park that meet the current and future needs of the community. The design will evolve through consultation with residents, the public and other stakeholders.




Join us for a lively conversation on “Park + City Making”, exploring David Crombie Park’s past and future with lessons learned and opportunities for revitalization, moderated by author and former CBC broadcaster, Jane Farrow. The conversation, with a panel of three inspiring experts, will include questions and comments from the floor.

David Crombie, namesake of the Park and mayor at the time the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood was conceived in the late 70’s, will tell us about the inspiration, big ideas and challenges of creating the neighbourhood and its integrated “green spine” park.

Renée Daoust, a Governor General award winning Montreal architect and urban designer, will share her insights into what makes fantastic parks and streets, showcasing projects from around the world.

Janie Romoff, the City of Toronto’s General Manager of Parks, Recreation and Forestry, will talk about exciting new directions for our City parks and public realm.
