UNDERPASS PARK helps tame a cross-town expressway

One of TORONTO’s most innovative urban parks, UNDERPASS PARK, is a two and a half acre mixed-use space tucked beneath the Eastern Avenue ramps to the Gardiner Expressway.  It’s the largest park built under an overpass in Canada, and was designed by VANCOUVER-based landscape architects Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg.  Created under the auspices of WATERFRONT TORONTO, this park transforms the emerging West Donlands neighborhood into a fun space with its avant-garde public art, recreational areas, and contemporary green space.
