Janet Rosenberg & Studio:由多伦多社区住房部和多伦多市合作开发的JoelWeeks公园代表了一个社区的新生。公园在设计中参考了该地区和唐河的历史、地理文化背景,为不断扩大而又充满活力的Rivertowne社区提供了重要的开放绿色空间。河流植被和弯曲的长凳代表着旧的和新的公园元素。中央集聚区连接着公园中其他的元素,包括社区花园,多功能运动场,树木和大草坪。一个大型的儿童游乐区中包括一个游戏屋、秋千和自然游戏区。包括桥梁在内的城市“河”元素围绕着水上游戏。随着居民的增加,JoelWeeks公园成为一个充满活力的社区开放空间。评论如下:
“这个公园虽然小,但却有强大的文明效应。它是安静但又辉煌的”
- 多伦多明星克里斯托弗·休谟说。
Janet Rosenberg & Studio: Developed in partnership with Toronto Community Housing and the City of Toronto, Joel Weeks Park represents the regeneration and coming together of a community. The park design references the history and geography of the area and the Don River, and provides critical open green space for the growing and vibrant Rivertowne community. River plantings and sinuous benches frame old and new park elements. A central gathering space connects other park elements including community garden plots, a multi-function sport court, a bosque of trees and large grassy berms. A large children’s play area includes a play structure, swings, and natural play features. An urban ‘river’ element including a bridge wraps around a water play area with jets. Joel Weeks Park is a dynamic and active community open space that will grow with the neighbourhood. A review reads:
“Though small, the facility has a powerful civilizing effect. The results are quiet but brilliant”
- Christopher Hume, The Toronto Star.
