Therme Canada has revealed a new design for the West Island of Ontario Place, which will become a year-round family-friendly destination attraction with additional public parkland space.

The updated features and new areas, spanning 1.62 ha (4 acres), are designed with input from the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation (MCFN) and feedback from public meetings, community engagement, and the City of Toronto planning staff. When complete, the Ontario Place public parkland will become the largest public gathering space on Toronto’s western waterfront.

The new changes include:

Here are the details on the proposed Ontario Place enhancements:

“The design that we revealed today delivers the same great waterpark and wellbeing attractions, but thanks to feedback, it has even more open parkland, more natural spaces, more public trails, and more places for people to gather,” says Dr. Robert Hanea, CEO and chairman of Therme Group. “After this revitalization, there will be more public space than [what] currently exists on the West Island, and we are proud to advance a project that responds so meaningfully to the feedback we have heard so far.”
