Meet in the Roundhouse Park, at the Entrance of the Rec Room
It is estimated that for each new high-rise residential development in the City of Toronto, there are 4-8 pets in each floor of these buildings. As the pet population in our urban environments increases, it becomes increasingly important to understand the needs of pets, their owners and the needs of non-pet owners. Join us for this Walk to see how recent developments have attempted to accommodate these needs and to have a conversation about how to design spaces in new developments that can support this growing trend. This walk will end at Canoe Landing Park at City Place.
