Toronto’s waterfront is about to be in for a sweet makeover. The city just announced the latest in their CreateTO program and you are definitely going to want to check it out. Thanks to a new partnership with Claude Cormier + Associés, the Leslie Slip Lookout Park is officially on the go. So the Leslie Slip Lookout Park is set to be located right at the bottom of the Leslie Street. You may also know this area for its popular destination, Tommy Thompson Park. The land is being completely revitalized into a gorgeous tourist hotspot with loads of amazing perks.

For starters, this CreateTO project will transform Toronto’s Port Lands into a 1.9-acre public park. The area will feature a 360-degree platform, for amazing views of the city skyline. There will also be a public beach. Plus, plenty of room for year-round events like concerts and art exhibits.
If this spot wasn’t popular enough already, it sure is about to be. As we mentioned, the contract for the space in collaboration with Claude Cormier + Associés. These fine folks are also responsible for city highlights like Sugar Beach and Berczy Park. So we know the place is in good hands.
