Toronto Inukshuk ParkAddress: 789 LAKE SHORE BLVD W Map It
The Toronto Inukshuk Park, formerly Battery Park, is home to the Toronto Inukshuk, a legacy project to commemorate World Youth Day in 2002 that brings an important symbol of Canada's Aboriginal people to the people of Toronto. An Inuit stone structure often found in the arctic landscape, the Inukshuk serves as a guide to travellers on land and sea, providing comfort, advice and spatial orientation. One of the largest of its kind in North America, the structure stands 30 feet high with an arm span of 15 feet. Approximately 50 tonnes of mountain rose granite was used to create the Inukshuk, which was made by internationally acclaimed Inuit artist Kellypalik Qimirpik from Cape Dorset, Nunavut.
