Corktown Common Park Ecological Design

Toronto, ON

Great Ecology served as the ecological design consultants on the Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates team for the creation of wetland and upland wildlife habitats within Corktown Common Park. The Corktown Common project transformed a post-industrial site along the Toronto waterfront into a cultural and ecological public space with habitats that are resilient within Toronto's varying climate. Great Ecology also collaborated on the design of the stormwater management systems, developing stormwater-fed features for the Park including shallow-water wildlife basking areas, deep water pockets and large woody debris piles that replicate natural processes in the floodplain. Great Ecology additionally consulted on the selection of plants for a central interior pond that supports resident and migratory bird and insect species.
