From concrete to living garden, the Toronto City Hall podium roof, where visiting dignitaries were once welcomed at the “front door” of the Council Chambers, is now a public green roof garden.

Approximately 3,250 m2 (35,000 square feet) of concrete on the podium roof has been transformed into living vegetation to reduce the building’s environmental impact and for residents and visitors to enjoy all year around.

New landscaped gardens, courtyards, terraces, furniture and walkways provide unique views of downtown from this urban oasis in the heart of the city.

Come see how Toronto’s iconic City Hall continues to inspire in this age of environmental sustainability with its green roof structure that comes with a state-of-the-art irrigation system, and is also the city’s largest publicly accessible green roof!
