MONTCLAIR PARKETTE WINS 'OUTSTANDING STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENT' AWARD
Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA) recognized Montclair Parkette for its positive contribution to Forest Hill village community, and awarded Kearns Mancini with the Outstanding Streetscape Improvement award for 2011.
The revitalization of Montclair Parkette is the initial phase of the Forest Hill Village master plan improvement strategy. Montclair Parkette is located at the south end of the village of Forest Hill. The intent of this project is to contribute to the beautification of the community and to re-create the parkette to become a gateway to the village. The natural stone retaining walls wrap around the existing mature deciduous trees and the stone paved walkway, which bisects the parkette, provides a sense of place. Custom Corian benches as well as the retaining walls offer ample seating and the variety of plantings contribute to the tranquility of the park.
