1 cat-themed park connecting Wellington Street to King Street West:
The idea for a cat-themed park came from the landscape architect, who, when visiting the site, was often greeted by a friendly local feline celebrity Dizzy the cat who calls the area home. The Wellington promenade provides a needed physical connection between King Street West and Wellington Street, complete with a generous planting of catnip, black locust and eastern bud, as well as a nod to the mid-19th century aesthetic.
The promenade is lined with a cascading water feature. Seating and lighting create a welcoming environment, while a series of cat statues adorn the space, providing a western counterpoint to the Berczy Dog Park on the eastern end of Wellington Street.

- Rail Deck Park Proposal:In Fall 2016, Toronto City Council endorsed a proposal for a new major park in downtown Toronto to be built over the rail corridor between Bathurst Street and Blue Jays Way.Known as “Rail Deck Park”, the proposed project brings green space into downtown Toronto on a scale no one imagined could ever happen.This highly anticipated and much-needed park borders the southern edge of The Well and transforms this unused airspace into Toronto’s newest gathering place for recreation, culture and celebration.
Together with The Well, the proposed Rail Deck Park supports the continued growth, prosperity and livability of Toronto.
