This new little greenspace used to be a parking lot.
Unveiled in June 2017, the new Berczy Park is a perfect pit stop for your downtown Toronto wanderings. At the centerpiece of the triangular space (located west of the Flatiron Building) is a new fountain adorned by dog statues shooting water towards a golden bone. It’s not a splash pad, but kids will definitely get a kick out of the shoots of water. There are small grassy hills for picnicking, running and rolling down, plus some new seating.
PS – there are two cats, two birds and some worms. Can your kids spot them?
Getting there: The park is nestled between Wellington and Front Streets, Church St to the east and Scott to the west. There is street park along Wellington, Front and Church Streets. It’s a 7 min walk east from Union Station.
Its pretty pretty at night:
