Berczy Park Wins the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects’ 2018 National Award

Congratulations to Claude Cormier et Assocés for their award winning revitalization project at Berczy Park!

Nestled against the historic “flatiron” Gooderham building in the Old Toronto district, Berczy Park is a pristine and whimsical place to spend a summer afternoon. Large elm trees shade the grassy lawns and patterned granite paving that surround a two-tiered cast iron fountain. While at first glance, the fountain appears to be a classic 19th-century design, a closer inspection reveals that the water spouts are intricately crafted dog sculptures. This delightful surprise amid the traditional landscape is the signature of Montreal-based designer Claude Cormier. The public space promises to be a treasured respite from city life for many years to come.

Smith + Andersen was proud to provide lighting, mechanical, and electrical services on this award-winning project.
