A public meeting has been announced to provide feedback on the master plan for the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Harbour Square Park.

Waterfront Toronto launched an innovative design competition in partnership with the City of Toronto in November 2014. In addition to a master plan, the scope of work for this competition included a phasing plan which would allow City agencies to develop appropriate strategies for funding the work.

This upcoming public meeting will be to provide an update on the refined master plan and an overview of the phased approach to delivering this master plan, focusing on the proposed phase 1 design. 

The Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Harbour Square Park occupy prime waterfront space at the end of two of Toronto’s most important streets: Bay Street and Yonge Street. This site has the potential to be a signature public space: more functional, more accessible, more beautiful, and more connected to Toronto’s downtown, both physically and visually. This new master plan will deliver an iconic Ferry Terminal with a more efficient queuing area connected to an enhanced Harbour Square Park. The site will promote continuous waterfront access and will provide universal access for people of all ages and abilities.

Your participation and ideas are important and will help shape the future of the Ferry Terminal site. The public meeting details are as follows:
