Hope all Canadians around the globe had a great Canada Day celebration on Sunday!
Loved the patterned shadows cast by these umbrellas on the textured
sandy beach of the HTO Park at Harbourfront, Toronto, Ontario.
The park was designed by Janet Rosenberg + Associates Landscape Architects, Claude Cormier Architectes Paysagistes Inc. and Hariri Pontarini Architects.
This park incorporates elements of a park, beach, and golf course. The park's standout feature is a sandpit that holds Muskoka chairs and enormous fixed yellow metal umbrellas. The umbrellas were designed to evoke the Georges Seurat painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. At night, the park knolls are illuminated by LED lights.
HTO Park East is also home the Toronto Fire Services Station (Marine Unit) 334, Toronto EMS Station 36.
Thanks for dropping by.
