HtO Park

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Project Facts

  • Completed in June 2007, Park HtO is a six-acre public beach and gathering place located on Toronto’s Lake Ontario waterfront.
  • Just a few years ago, this land was a polluted, industrial wasteland. Construction of the park involved remediation of a contaminated brownfield.
  • A portion of the park extends over Lake Ontario to increase its usable area. As a result, the park’s boardwalk sits 10 meters above the lake floor.
  • The Park’s “green space” is irrigated exclusively by lake water.
