CONTEXT

APPROACH
The redevelopment goal is to create a welcoming community hub capable of sustaining year-long recreational activity, and to transform the park into a beautiful sequence of indoor and outdoor spaces. The new facilities have been designed using a consistent vocabulary of forms and palette of materials. Each building has a series of terraces and shaded deck areas overlooking the park activities, reinforcing the indoor-outdoor intentions of the complex.

The Chalet and Tennis / Curling facilities have revitalized the core commercial aspects of the park and added to the interior program areas, as well as adding park features to be served by these buildings. The Park Amenity and Boat Pavilion has added new program to an underserved area of the park and supports the playground and picnic area.
