The success of a public space is measured by the number of people happily using it. If there are many different people, doing many different things, and at many different times of the day in a space; what you have created is a PLACE. The difference is that spaces are defined by physical features; places are defined by people.
With this project Designer, Builder ("Chief Alchemist") Adam Bienenstock has created a framework of natural materials within which public PLACE can take hold; an environment were people can connect with each other and also be "inspired to re-connect with nature in the most urban of settings".
Although temproary, Celebration Park will awaken the imagination of Torontonians. As people experience the Park they will be able to envision a wondorous future where they can connect with life in the city in a whole new way.
