David Crombie Park Panel

Jane moderated a panel discussion to kick off the revitalization of David Crombie Park in 2018.


To kick off the City of Toronto park revitalization project, Jane moderated a panel discussion on “Park + City Making” with three inspiring experts:

  • David Crombie, Toronto’s mayor when St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood was conceived in the late 70s, spoke about the inspiration, big ideas and challenges of creating the neighbourhood and its integrated “green spine” park.

  • Renee Daoust, a Governor General award-winning Montreal architect and urban designer, shared her insights into what makes fantastic parks and streets, showcasing projects from around the world.

  • Janie Romoff, the City of Toronto’s General Manager of Parks, Recreation and Forestry, talked about exciting new directions for our city parks and public realm.
