Toronto, ON
Client: Therme Canada
Size: 63 hectare
Completion: In Progress

As part of a consultant team lead by Diamond Schmitt Architects,  STUDIO tla is providing the province of Ontario and the City of Toronto with a dynamic public waterfront experience.  In celebration of the natural beauty of the region, Therme Canada has reimagined Ontario Place to preserve the historic and cultural amenities of past generations while building upon the urban framework of Toronto through the addition of new parklands, wetlands, beaches, and multi-use trails.  


The planned parklands and beach areas surround the building and allow year-round public waterfront access. The restorative value of outdoor green spaces for recreation, community gathering, and overall quality of life will be enriched with plans for free, public swimming; a new significantly expanded beach area; improved access to the lake edge, beach, wetlands; and an extension of the William G. Davis trail across the entire site, accessible to all.
