This past weekend, my curiosity got the better of me as wandered around the River City neighbourhood …and in particular, Underpass Park!
I was killing some time in between appointments and trying to find away to snap some pictures of the Don River Park from atop the Adelaide E Bridge. Sadly, I didn’t have much luck as Cole Haans aren’t the most practical shoes for fence jumping or bridge scaling. Although… I was successful in finding a nice little place to park for free (something that’s getting harder and harder in Toronto). With my car tucked away, I had juuust enough time to snap a few photos of the changes under the bridge!
Construction started about 6 months ago on the dreary and dark space under the bridge. Once complete, Underpass Park will be the most extensive park to ever be built under an overpass in Canada. Already concrete has been poured, plants have been planted and jungle sets for the kids installed!
I was happy to see that some of the street art that was on the support coloumns of the bridge are still on site… in fact, I think it would be really cool if all of the columns were wrapped in colourful imagery. Anything is better than boring concrete in my opinion!
In the few months that they’ve been working on it, it’s looking pretty close to the initial renderings (from WaterfrontToronto)! I’ll definitely be going back and taking more pics as progress continues on the park.
This is defintily one of the most exciting parts of town right now and located right next to the park is River City which just recently launched it’s second phase! I have access to prices and floorplans…if you’d like more information, please fill out the form below, I’d be happy to help:
