A Small City Park

This is Berczy Park which is in the St Lawrence neighbourhood near Front & Yonge Streets. It was opened in 1980 replacing a parking lot but has been closed since 2015 to undergo rejuvenation. I'll be showing you some great features from the park, which is less than an acre in size, over the next few days. Yesterday's puppy was photographed here.

Hello, it is a pretty park. I like the hanging flowers and the fountain.
Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead.

That's dear, P

Very pretty! We need more spaces for trees to grow (and flowers, shrubs, grass). Love the fountain!

How fine this park has been rejuvenated and is now open to the public. The fountain looks lovely.

Looks like a wonderful place to pass some time. I love the fountain, it adds its beauty to the park.

Maybe small, but so pretty, all that greenery, and flowers about, and yesterday's pup was sweet. My favorite part of this photo is the building with the (is it artwork?) appearing to be windows and yet it's like folding in? Very curious about it, please share if you can.

It looks so green. Would like to be on that park bench right now.

An attractive green oasis. The fountain looks quite large in a small park (as you describe it) Far more attractive than a former parking lot!

Looks tranquil. If it's next to Younge Street the surroundings can't be as quiet.

I love the idea of small neighborhood parks; it looks like they did a great job.

Looks gorgeous Pat. I bet the sound of the water fountain would make it a lovely spot to sit!

The fountain draws my eye.

Nice re-use of the space vacated by a garage.
