Lisgar Park is an industrial themed playground that pays homage to the history of the site, which was formerly the home of an early 1900s warehouse. The light posts in the existing park are laid out in a grid pattern to reference the wood beam supports from the old factory. This inspired the design decision to embrace the industrial past of the site and integrate it into the playground elements. The playground features a gear sculptural climber and pipe climbers that set the tone for the play space. A nearby log climber offers greater challenge for older kids and brings a natural element into Toronto’s urban centre.
