The year 2020 will be an exciting year for Bloorcourt! For the past couple of years, we have been planning for the installation for three parkettes in the neighbourhood.
Inspiration for the elements of the parkette designs draws on the imagery of a local fruit market and the recent Rosina Shopkeeper research project with Heritage Toronto.
Construction for the parkettes is slated to begin in spring 2020. We look forward to seeing people enjoying the parkettes once they are complete.
These are made possible with a partnership with the City of Toronto BIA Office.
