Clean & Beautiful City Appreciation Award
Percy Street Park – Toronto, Ontario
The City of Toronto retained the landscape architectural design services of Seferian Design Group to redevelop Percy Street Park near the future West Don Lands project. The development of the Park was conceived in conjunction with the City of Toronto, Mayor David Miller and the neighbouring community.
The park included gathering areas for residents, community garden plots for growing vegetables, shade, grass and public art. Graffiti was removed, garbage collected and the neighbours all participated in the process. Within weeks of breaking ground, the park was complete including features such as night lighting and an irrigation system. The entire project was completed at no cost to the residents or the City. In 2007, Mayor David Miller presented Seferian Design Group Limited with a Clean & Beautiful City Appreciation Award.
