//November 1st Community Charette Workshop

November 1st Community Charette Workshop

The SVRA, the Vermont Square Park Renewal Committee, and Plant Architect Inc. in partnership with the City of Toronto are holding the second of 2 community design workshops (Charettes) Monday November 1st 7:00 -9:00 @ St. Albans Boys and Girls club in the library on the second floor.

We had a wonderful turnout in Vermont Square park last weekend on Saturday October 23rd. The theme explored was  “Paths and Small Gathering spaces.” Participants used balloons to imagine where a gazebo might be best situated and long ropes to consider where a variety of pathways might bisect and connect our park and neighbourhood.

This Monday night, we will be exploring the themes ” ‘Passive’ (Quiet, Non Recreational) and ‘Active’ (Recreational, Sport) uses of the Park. Yes, this includes, amongst many topics, the playground, the open green space, the empty or under-utilized spaces – the entire park!
