Sault Ste Marie, Ontario
This project is a powerful example of how derelict land can be remedied and transformed into an exciting waterfront showcase. The Roberta Bondar site accommodates the farmer's market, provides facilities and accommodations for visiting entertainers and offers a variety of activities and events which make the park a true "people place". The park program includes various theme gardens, passive recreation, active recreation, children's water-play areas, water features, amphitheatre, boardwalk and gazebos, sculptures, and interpretive features, as well as a sailing school and future expansion for the Sault Ste. Marie Library and Art Gallery of Algoma.
