Simplified Shannon Mews Park design

The new 0.285 hectare park is part of the redevelopment of Shannon Mews, and will be accessible from both 57th Avenue and from Granville Street. The landscape architecture firm of Durante Kreuk Ltd. has developed a concept design for the new public green space, which will feature heritage elements, native landscaping, and a natural playground. 

The Shannon Mews park is part of an overall redevelopment of Shannon Mews, which includes:

  • Demolishing two existing buildings
  • Building three new buildings
  • Building two levels of underground parking
  • Restoring three designated heritage buildings and perimeter walls
  • Restoring heritage landscaping elements
  • Landscape work including replacing an existing swimming pool
  • Building a district energy system

Online feedback form will be available until October 3, 2012.
