Walking Tour of Yorkville (Part 2)

by admin

MM picSaturday May 25, 10 a.m., with ERA’s Michael McClelland and Charles Birnbaum of The Cultural Landscape Foundation.

Meeting place: The base of the giant granite rock in Village of Yorkville Park (south side of Cumberland St., between Bellair St. and Avenue Rd.).

Half a century ago, the village of Yorkville was a bohemian neighbourhood frequented by artists, poets and musicians. In more recent years, this neighbourhood has transformed into a bustling commercial and residential district. Meandering through a series of parks, laneways and squares, this walk will explore Yorkville’s public realm and the impact urban revitalization and landscape architecture projects have had on the evolution of this dynamic neighbourhood. The stops on this tour will include the Village of Yorkville Park, the Four Seasons Hotel arrival court and garden and Town Hall Square. This walk will coincide with Doors Open Toronto.
