Grand Avenue Park Master Plan

The local community and stakeholders were engaged through workshops, WalkShops and an open house to explore the redevelopment of 5 hectares of parkland.


PMA Landscape Architect was hired by the City of Toronto to redesign and revitalize 5 hectares of parkland in Mimico, an area that has experienced significant high-rise development and population growth over the past decade. The Dept of Words & Deeds was the public facilitation lead and did process design for this project. We were charged with the task of engaging the local community and stakeholders in a comprehensive public consultation process including workshops, WalkShops and an open house – carried out over 18 months in 2017 and 2018.
