The Ontario Science Centre to Build Indoor Playspace at Canoe Landing Park Community Recreation Centre
The Ontario Science Centre and the City of Toronto have finalized an agreement with the Ontario Science Centre to design and build the indoor playscape at the Canoe Landing Community Recreation Centre (Scheduled to be completed and opened in Fall 2019).
The CityPlace Residents Association (CPRA) is pleased that this new City of Toronto partnership with the Ontario Science Centre will result in the design and fabrication of one of the best indoor play facilities for children in their early years at the new Canoe Landing Community Recreation Centre. This is good news for the CityPlace community and a benefit to making this a family friendly downtown neighbourhood!
The indoor playspace will be designed and built by the Ontario Science Centre.
On May 1, the CPRA attended a design charrette as part of a collaborative process in which community partners and stakeholders worked together in shaping the vision for the 3000 Sq Ft Indoor Playspace for the Canoe Landing Community Recreation Centre (Block 31).
At the Ontario Science Centre, we learned about the power of play, functionality of design as a catalyst for play, and worked collaboratively with many stakeholders including architects, planners, construction company officials, educators, parents and community leaders in helping to envision a futuristic concept for the indoor playscape at the new Canoe Landing Community Recreation Centre.
