McMichael Canadian Art Collection

Kleinburg ON

Project Overview

EDA prepared the overall long-range site and landscape renovation master plan, detailed design, contract documents, and site supervision for this significant Canadian cultural facility and gallery. The plans included the new front entrance area, valley access walkways, nature trails, service and fire routes, and the reservoir and pumphouse areas. Indigenous plant materials were used throughout the plan and natural areas were replanted to encourage natural regeneration. Slopes and erosion prone areas were treated with both natural boulders and native landscape materials to harmonize with the wilderness character of the site.
