Join us for the official opening celebration for the Tommy Thompson Park improvements!

The opening of a series of small pavilions, designed by Montgomery Sisam, celebrates a major milestone in the development of Toronto’s waterfront.

The pavilions have been designed to support the enjoyment, management and interpretation of the Park, without disturbing its character as urban wilderness. Three interventions respond to three unique intentions; a Staff Booth, Environmental Shelter and Bird Banding and Research Station.

This Saturday’s festivities are set to begin at the Environmental Shelter and will take place from 9am to 10:30am.

About Tommy Thompson Park

Managed by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, Tommy Thompson Park is a unique man-made peninsula composed entirely of construction waste. Started in 1959, the site now extends about five kilometers into Lake Ontario and is more than 250 hectares in area. From this humble beginning, the Park has developed into a complex mosaic of habitats, which support a diverse community of plants and wildlife.

The park is located at the foot of Leslie Street, south of Lakeshore Boulevard East
