Big news today from Waterfront Toronto:
Torontonians can now enjoy phase one of Underpass Park, an extraordinarily original and innovative new waterfront public park.
Underpass Park is the most extensive park to ever be built under an overpass in Canada, and the first of its kind in Toronto. Located in the West Don Lands under and around the Eastern Avenue and Richmond/Adelaide overpasses, the new park has transformed the derelict and underused space into a bright, new, neighbourhood amenity.
Constructed in two phases, the first completed sections of the park are between St. Lawrence Street and Bayview Avenue. Visitors can access the completed portions of the park from River Street, south of King Street.
There will be an official opening ceremony later in the summer. For now, go and enjoy the new park!
