He’s been called the FRANK GEHRY of bike parks. JAY HOOTS is billed as the most experienced bike park designer in North America, with more than 40 parks under his belt. SUNNYSIDE is one of his latest, on a strip of land north of Lake Shore Boulevard West, between Colborne Lodge Drive and Ellis Avenue. The park entrance is on the east side of Ellis Avenue.
JAY says TORONTO’s park ranks high with its log tracks, elevated ladder bridges, dirt berms and rollers, dirt jumps and rock trails. And it’s free.
The park should reduce or eliminate informal parks being created in ecologically sensitive areas in the High Park neighbourhood. It’s a Parks, Forestry and Recreation project.
