Canoe Landing Park (Coupland)



Scope note(s)

  • An 8-hectare park in downtown Toronto, Ontario, designed by Coupland in collaboration with Landscape Architects, The Planning Partnership of Toronto, Public Art Consultant Karen Mills, and Concord Ardex Developments. " The park incorporates integrated artwork in the form of a landform (the bluff) and stand alone art pieces by Douglas Coupland: a canoe large enough for people to stand in and see over the Gardiner to Lake Ontario, a colourful display of large fishing bobbers, a sculptural beaver dam, programmed tree lighting (which will be more evident as the trees fill out), a pair of "iceberg benches" situated near the canoe, the "heart-shaped stone" bronze artwork which was cast from a stone retrieved by Terry's brother at the end of his journey and a one-mile run called the Terry Fox Miracle Mile." .
