Brilliant Canadian landscape architect CLAUDE CORMIER now has a second TORONTO iconic park to his name. The creator of Sugar Beach on the eastern waterfront has redesigned Berczy Park, between Front and Wellington Streets behind the Flatiron Building.

The $7.2-million remake – thanks to Vancouver’s Concert Developments – is very spacious, with lots of grass and benches, and rows of trees.

The “dog” fountain is the centre piece. It’s surrounded by 27 cast-iron dogs and one cat, with a coveted bone on top. Dog walkers and kids love it. This park is a hit already and it’s only just opened.

Berczy Park is one of three downtown parks being renovated.  The Grange and Barbara Ann Scott parks are the other two.
