St James Park Master Plan

A two-phase engagement process was designed and facilitated to develop a Master Plan for the Park.


Located adjacent to Toronto’s oldest Anglican congregation and cathedral, St James Park is one of the city’s most beloved and active parks. The Master Plan, developed over a three phase process led by PMA Landscape Architects, has guided improvements and capital projects including a new playground, event space, revitalized walkways, lighting and landscaping features. Jane was the lead public engagement designer and facilitator on the two-phased process.
