Yonge Street Linear Parks

Engagement and outreach was provided to local residents, business, organizations and communities who depend heavily on this strip of trees, plantings and benches for respite from the urban streetscape.


The Yonge Street Linear Park network provides vital green space and a popular pedestrian route parallel to Yonge Street in the Church-Wellesley neighbourhood. The revitalization project includes George Hislop Park, Norman Jewison Park and Alexander Street Parkette and includes new pathways and seating, public art and performance nodes, renewed greening and lighting upgrades. The design team is led by PMA Landscape Architects with DWD providing engagement and outreach to local residents, business, organizations and communities who depend heavily on this strip of trees, plantings and benches for respite from the urban streetscape.
