Holland Green Park

town of East Gwillimbury, York Region, on

Holland Green Park encompasses an area of 1.8 hectares in the newly planned community of Holland Green. It combines the ecological and social aspects of landscape and park design in a new way. It enhances the prospect of significant community use through its various landscape settings. The topography of the site informs the planning, with design elements contrasting and harmonizing with the dramatic landforms – ecological design and community needs come into juxtaposition.

Delivering on the initial objectives, the existing topography has been retained, while creating native vegetation communities and habitats such as upland deciduous forest, Riparian Forest and Wild Flower Meadows.

Landscape elements such as habitat Islands, a children’s Garden, step and slide, edible Garden, fitness garden and “companion” garden have all been developed, responding to community needs while creating a diverse spatial sequence.
