Media Invite: To Come Play in Our Sandbox

Come Play in Our Sandbox! Get Down and Dirty With Douglas Coupland and Councillor Adam Vaughan Join Us at Concord CityPlace Community Park Thursday November 27th, 2008 12:00pm - 2:00pm, Making Urban Toronto a Better Place to Live

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2008) - Toronto's biggest and most ambitious urban greenspace in decades starts right here today. Join artist Douglas Coupland and Councillor Adam Vaughan as they literally start dishing the dirt on CityPlace Community Park (in a good way of course)!

This stunning park has been designed by Coupland in conjunction with Greg Smallenberg of renowned urban designers Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg, and is one of the most significant privately-funded downtown Toronto parks to be created in decades. The eight-acre park will be the focal point of the 45-acre master-planned community, Concord CityPlace in the heart of downtown Toronto.

This unique urban park will feature both natural and man-made beauty and will be available for use by all of the citizens of Toronto. Its place in the heart of Toronto also places it perfectly for the planned multi-faceted uses - recreational, educational and visual. As an added bonus, Concord CityPlace will leave a substantial legacy to the cultural wealth of the city by gifting this public amenity to the City of Toronto upon its completion in the spring of 2009.

Join Coupland and Vaughan break ground and be one of the first to experience the birth of this historic venture as we get into the future of Toronto's urban greenery.

WHERE: CityPlace 23 Spadina Avenue
Ample parking at presentation centre
WHAT: Sod Turning, Lunch and Photo Opportunity with Douglas Coupland,
