Clarence Square is one of the oldest remaining park spaces in the downtown core of Toronto. Established with a strong relationship to Wellington Street and complementary park space Victoria Square, it was originally designed as an important feature in an exclusive area of the city. The park became a largely neglected space when the rail yards and industrial warehouses inhabited areas adjacent to the park. As industrial uses leave the neighborhood, it transforms once again into a primarily residential and commercial area. ERA worked with the Planning Partnership to reestablish Clarence Square’s prominence within the district.
