Harbour Square Park E&W, Toronto, Canada, 2023[open in full screen]  

 
  < Previous Eaton Centre, Toronto

Stretch along Queens Quay West, between Jack Layton Ferry Terminal for Toronto Islands and Harbourfront Centre is where both of this parks is located. Why it is divided to the east and the west is not clear, even the border between them is not clearly visible. We are very often here since our granddaughters are attending the Waterfront Montessori Children's Centre (WMCC) is located on the Ward Island so we have to leave them here in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon.

 

Atmosphere here is quite pleasant so being half an hour early is desirable even during the winter when Lake Ontario is frozen. That happened only two or three days this year.

Quite exceptional, I am quite sure that Climate Change is guilty party.

  Harbour Square Park East is hosting two unusual sculptures. One is Jack Layton, created by Toronto artist David Pellettier, on the bicycle with two seats, second one being empty so everyone can join him.

Second one is The Brotherhood FUBU [For Us, By Us] by Esmaa Mahamoud, kids favourite. Check the photo in the second row bellow to the right.

Harbour Square Park West, Toronto, Canada, 2023[open in full screen]  
  West side of the park is hosting another unusual structure. It is called Sundial Folly, large concrete ball sitting on the edge of Lake Ontario. It was created by John Fung and Paul Figueiredo and installed at Toronto’s Harbourfront in 1995.   Connection between two areas is pleasant wooden path over the water with the sight of small waterfall flowing from the concrete ball. Inside is also having some content, it is possible to walk inside, so check it out, I am not going to relieve that experience.   Next High Park, Toronto, Canada  >
