Fort York Visitor Centre in The Globe & Mail

Fort York: Toronto’s most historic site gets a 21st-century upgrade

“And its front yard, brilliantly imagined by landscape architect Janet Rosenberg as an “events dock,” is similarly incomplete; the design will extend piers of wood into a bay of waving grasses. This outdoor space, under the canopy of the highway, will be spectacular. Once the necessary money appears, that is. The Fort York Foundation has raised about one-third of a planned $6-million toward the project’s $25-million total. The Visitor Centre opened in September anyway, with financing from all three levels of government and from developers. Another $4-million in donations is needed to complete the building, the landscape and permanent installations within the centre.”
