CANOE LANDING PARK & MEMORIAL TO CANADIAN HERO, TERRY FOX

Canoe Landing Park, designed by Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg of Vancouver, overlooks the Gardiner Expressway, a block or so west of Spadina Avenue.  The park features several stand alone works by west coast artist and sculptor Douglas Coupland.  These include a display of large, colourful fishing bobbers and a red canoe, atop a hill built from nearby construction excavations.  That canoe has become a favourite city landmark.  Canoe Landing Park is also home to the Terry Fox Miracle Mile running track.  Twice around the track = 1 mile.
