Canada’s 1948 Olympic gold medalist in women’s singles figure skating BARBARA ANN SCOTT (1928-2012) would be pleased to know that TORONTO and developers Canderel Stoneridge have agreed to rebuild both the skating rink and the park itself.

This park is surrounded on all sides by skyscrapers, town houses and condo apartments in a densely populated downtown neighbourhood. The project should be completed in the very near future.

TORONTO’s Forestry and Recreation Division is supervising the revitalization which includes planning and design work from RAW Design, the MBTW Group/Watchorn Architect and Project for Public Spaces (PPS).
