THE DOCTORS’ PARKETTE @ BRUNSWICK & COLLEGE STREETS, HONOURS MEDICAL HISTORY

RICHARD LONGLEY in NOW Magazine – “The job is done. The Doctor’s Parkette, dedicated to honour the medical history of HARBORD VILLAGE, whose stars included Dr. Norman Bethune & Dr. Henry Morgentaler (and other prominent doctors who lived in the area, along with its hospitals) transformed this once-squalid corner.”A design competition announced by the Harbord Village Residents’ Association in 2011 to revitalize the site produced 27 entries from eight countries. A panel of professionals judged them and residents voted for their favourites. (In 2018 – 7 years later – the Doctors’ Parkette became reality). <PHOTOS – PMA Lanscape Architects Limited>
