THE SUN WAS SHINING WHEN ROSS WINTER AND I DECIDED TO EXPLORE TORONTO’S UNDERPASS PARK


Underpass Park transformed derelict, unused space beneath a series of overpasses into a unique community park. The area is located under and around the Eastern Avenue, Richmond and Adelaide overpasses. It’s the most extensive park ever built under a Canadian overpass, and the first ever in Toronto. “torontosavvy” presented the early version of The Park, but it was quite different then from the one we saw yesterday. New murals and painted figures have changed from 2012 – many are for children, and there are several others for adults. Around the edge are spectacular high-rise buildings, which turn the area into another city altogether. Get yourself to River Street and head South. Once you reach the West Donland, you’re there. You’ll find the Park is laden with greenery, sculptures, city bus service, dogs everywhere, kids playing – all having a great time.
