Editors note: Starting today OpenCity Projects brings you a weekly column every Monday morning, rounding up the best in public spaces from around the world.
- Innovative Park Creates Unusual Combination
Sherbourne Common, a newly completed park in Toronto, combines sculpture, children’s play areas, grassy expanses, and an urban canal, with an innovative underground stormwater treatment centre that uses ultraviolet light to clean the water before running it through the above ground portion of the park and out into Lake Ontario.

We’re pleased to have a site redesign that highlights our new blog. OpenCity is all about consulting with a range of people to understand how they experience cities. So, our blog is the perfect place to explore great public spaces and how they make our cities better places to live.
Every week we’ll feature new stories, from our network of contributors in major cities like Amsterdam, New York and Toronto, about local experiences and global trends.
