In February, the city announced it would be adding more than 30 new green spaces, including a new pedestrian plaza at the corner of University and Dundas.
The new green space is set to be open by the end of the year.
The green space, which was initially intended to be a public space, will eventually become a public plaza, said Karen St. Pierre, the director of public works.
“We’re excited about the idea of adding more public space in the city, whether that be in our downtown core or in our residential neighbourhoods,” she said.
The plaza will be in the back of the Green Room at Queen and Dundee.
“This is a very unique and beautiful green space and I think it will be an incredible opportunity for the public to walk through,” St. Peter said.
“I think it’s really important that we look at the parkscape and the public spaces as being complementary and complementary.”
She said the new plaza will also help to promote the city’s new “greening” program.
The program, which aims to reduce air pollution, promotes greening and beautification across the city.
It is part of the city-wide plan to create the cityscape.
St. Pierre said the city will also be building more green space.
“It will be a much larger park space that will have more public and pedestrian amenities and we’re looking to add to that park space,” she explained.
“There’s a lot of space to add and there’s a ton of work that has to be done on the park space.”
St. Peter also said she is open to the idea that the park can become a gathering spot for city residents to gather and socialize.
“The city has a lot more green spaces in the works than we’ve been showing off so far,” she added.
