Regent Park – The Big Park
The historical downtown Toronto neighbourhood of Regent Park is undergoing a remarkable transition that will see its revitalization to an innovative mixed-income, mixed-use community. Key principles of the renewal include urban planning for the way we live today, lower operating costs, an environmentally-friendly neighbourhood, and a connection between Regent Park and the surrounding community. Central to the neighbourhood is the Big Park, which will provide a range of amenities and features to support the neighbourhood and complement the broader revitalization.
Scope of Services
TMIG, as part of The Planning Partnership team, provided municipal infrastructure engineering for the park and all its services. Services include the provision of potable water and sanitary for fountains and water play areas, and stormwater management design to minimize the dependency of the park on the City’s receiving storm infrastructure.
Extensive coordination with The Planning Partnership design team yielded an integration of services that supported and respected the broader objectives and artistic vision for the park.
