CAWTHRA SQ. PARK HAS HAD SOME WORK DONE; REOPENS FOR WORLD PRIDE/2014 – JUNE 20-29

/Users/afung/Dropbox/THincDesign/THinc Projects/13005 Cawthra PaShedding its dark history of drug dealing and all that goes with it, CAWTHRA SQUARE PARK, is getting a shiny new face in time for WorldPride/2014. The park will play host to the annual AIDS candlelight vigil on June 24, and be transformed into the open-air Green Space nightclub from June 26-29. Cawthra Square Park has been host to Pride celebrations since 1978.

The AIDS memorial, children’s playground and dog exercise area are all intact.  Mature trees have been planted, the 519’s mural has gone up, lighting’s been improved, there are new benches, and “Wellesley Beach” is back in business.

HOK Architects – http://www.hok.comdid phase 1 design including the playground and landscaping to the east of the 519 Community Centre. Phase 2 was designed by http://www.thincdesign.ca and constructed by TBG Landscapes Landscapes Inc.

No doubt the Village community will adapt to the new park and make it their own.

  1. Just an FYI. HOK did phase 1 design including the playground and landscaping to the east of the 519 Community Centre. Phase 2 now complete was designed by http://www.thincdesign.ca and constructed by TBG Landscapes Landscapes Inc.

  2. Thanks Mike. I’ve made the corrections. DAVE
