  Previous James Beaty Courtyard, Toronto

Aitken Place Park is a multi-purpose space connecting Bayside to the broader East Bayfront community. The park includes places for children and pets to play, as well as quiet spots to relax and enjoy waterfront views. Completed in October 2019 to reflect the continuous Water’s Edge Promenade and strengthen neighbourhood connections. It was conceptualized as an urban refuge with sheltered spaces to work or watch the water, and spaces to play.

  Being in our neighborhood this quiet place by the lake is our favourite hang out park beside Canary Park much bigger one and serving different purpose, like used for birthday celebrations.

Alexander Aitkin (or Aitken, born around 1771 and died 1799) was a Scottish surveyor. He served as deputy surveyor general in 1784 and later the first surveyor general of Upper Canada.

  At 0.75 acres, the park has been designed as a neighbourhood amenity to serve the incoming wave of residents that will soon call this stretch of the waterfront home.

Scott Torrance Landscape Architect of Toronto and Thomas Balsley Associates of New York have been tasked with designing the park, which has evolved from its original design.
