Cathedraltown North Park

Creating the heart of a new community

Client City of Markham

Local consultation revealed just how much this park means to the community. We responded with a design that appeals to all ages and includes an accessible junior and senior playground, fitness area, play field, basketball court and water play area. A central plaza features a contemporary, custom-designed pergola that is the park’s focal point and provides shade and shelter.

A pathway encircling the park is shaded by large calibre deciduous trees and lined with benches. An existing mature hedgerow was integrated into the design and several play berms were created from earth left over from the neighbourhood's construction.
