Retrospective and future-oriented perspectives on Canadian urban green spaces designed by Frederick Todd.

Frederick Todd was the first resident landscape architect in Canada. At the beginning of the 20th century, he left an indelible mark on many Canadian cities, with his designs for picturesque parks in Montréal, Winnipeg, Vancouver, St. John’s, and Québec City. In 1903, he also created a report on the expansion of the national capital for the Ottawa Improvement Commission, a predecessor to the NCC.

The urban green spaces he left us, which we still enjoy to this day, are a gift. But how do we plan these spaces within a 21st century context? This event will feature discussions with planners and landscape architects who are today working in parks originally designed by Todd.
