A walking tour of Toronto’s newest waterfront neighborhood – East Bayfront – where innovative landscapes and high-quality public space take center stage.

For years, the Queen Elizabeth Docks were a reminder of Toronto’s industrial past, dominated by parking lots with few trees and former warehouse buildings that separated the city (and Torontonians) from the water’s edge. Now, after years of planning a transformation is underway where design is leading the way!

Join us on a tour as we explore this unfolding transformation through some of the buildings and landscapes of Toronto’s newest mixed-use neighbourhood. At the center of this tour will be imaginative and innovative landscapes and public spaces by prominent landscape architects that have catalyzed this redevelopment, and the ambitious plans of Waterfront Toronto to transform our waterfront.   

Tour Basics:

Starting Point: North end of Sugar Beach on the south side of Queen’s Quay Boulevard East
