Probably the newest park in Toronto, "Canoe Landing Park", finally opened this summer in the middle of an area down by the lake on former railway lands that are being filled with condo towers. The 3 acre park has 2 playing fields, a 1 mile running path, and several art pieces by Canadian author/artist Douglas Coupland who was involved in some of the design of the park. I love these giant fishing bobs that he has designed and placed in a lovely area looking down on the playing fields. Just behind them you can glimpse the beaver dam fountain which I will show tomorrow.
