All About the Village of Yorkville Park

Minto Yorkville Park, at the corner of Bellair and Cumberland in Yorkville, will overlook the Village of Yorkville Park, a unique and peaceful area in Yorkville. The park is designed to represent the diversity and beauty of natural Canadian landscapes.

Since it’s opening, the Village of Yorkville Park has won many awards such as the American Society of Landscape Architects award, the City of Toronto Urban Design Award of Excellence and the International Downtown’s Association Award of Merit.

Before the park was built, there were debates over how best to use the land. In the 1950s, the government decided to demolish a row of beautiful Victorian-styled homes to make way for the new subway line. However, residents wanted a park to be built over the subway. Instead a parking lot was constructed for commuters. Residents continued to be persistent, and in 1991 the City of Toronto Department of Parks and Recreation announced an international design competition. The winners were Oleson Worland Architects, in association with Martha Schwartz, Ken Smith and David Meyer Landscape Architects, who created a magnificent design of what the park is today.

The 11 landscapes of the park represent different Canadian environments, ranging from the upland forests found in the North, the river marshes found in the coastal areas, the prairies, orchards and rock outcroppings of the Canadian Shield. The most unique part about this park is the 650 tonne granite rock that sits right outside of Bay Station. The rock was taken from Canada’s glacial shield piece by piece and reassembled in the park. The rock is over 1 billion years old.

The park is a great place to relax, soak up sun and people watch. You’ll find benches around the park surrounded by diverse plant life. There’s also a wooden boardwalk around the marshy terrain, and a waterfall known as The Rain Curtain adds an artistic touch to the park.
