Background

June Callwood Park is located at 636 Fleet Street, north of Fleet Street and south of Fort York Boulevard. The 0.4 hectare park was dedicated in 2005 to honour June Callwood, an internationally acclaimed community activist, journalist, author and television host. She died in 2007. The Park was designed by Toronto based multi-disciplinary firm gh3 and was opened to the public in 2014.
