Canada Lands Company Downsview Park
Terraplan was recently invited, for the first time, to submit a proposal for landscape architectural services to the Canada Lands Company. The proposal relates to work at Downsview Park: Canada's first urban park located in North York. The proposal addresses the creation of new gateways along Keele Street frontage of the park. Addressing both pedestrian and vehicular traffic, these proposed gateways will be designed to provide a strong consistent and welcoming identity to this large programmed open space. Additionally, the gateways will reinforce the connection of Downsview Park to the immediate surrounding community.
As part of this proposal, Terraplan assembled a team of experienced and focused allied professionals including arborists, electrical, civil and traffic engineers. The scope of the work will include stakeholder meetings, presentations to the local neighbourhoods and finally detailed plans for tender and installation.
