A Fort York-Adjacent Park Looks to Both Past and Present

A retro-inspired scheme designed to serve a new community


To imagine Mouth of the Creek Park, Public Work took in the area’s surroundings: Fort York’s historic grounds to the left and the soaring modern towers of CityPlace to the right. The firm’s solution reshapes the site into a sloped promontory that reflects what existed back when the site sat at Toronto’s shoreline. Elevated lookouts offer a vantage point for taking Instagram-worthy shots of the city skyline, while the sheltered base is perfect for summer movie screenings.
