Berczy Park

Toronto, Ontario

One of my favorite parks in Toronto, Berczy Park boasts the most amazing water fountain you’ll ever see in your life. It is purely dedicated to the love of dogs with a token and symbolic gesture, to our other beloved family pet, the cat. Let’s see if you can find them!

Berczy Park is named after William Berczy, a German-born architect, surveyor, and writer often considered a co-founder of modern Toronto. The small park is a 3,606 square metre public park located in the triangle of land between Wellington, Front and Scott streets, across the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts. Before, when once a vacant lot and a parking lot, is now one of the areas most well used parks, humans and dogs alike. Over the last few years, the City of Toronto has been working closely with the local community to plan the revitalization of the area.

There is a dedicated gravel area for the animals to relieve themselves so as to protect the grass and plantings around the park. There are also dedicated trash bins, that are cleverly divided into recycling, garbage, and one specific one to note…for pet waste.

In one corner of the park you’ll find a few port o’pottys and scattered around the park are number of park benches which makes viewing the goings-on in the park rather pleasurable. A wonderful place to rest in the green amongst all the tall buildings in the area. A must see if you ever come to Toronto.

Berczy Park Reviews

What a fun park to find in the middle of the city. We came all the way to Toronto just to see this fountain. It’s fun sitting and watching the kids play around the bigger dogs at the bottom of the fountain. Then watching real dogs, coming up to sniff the statue dogs just to say hello. Claude Cormier is the landscape architect and genius who designed the fountain. Imagine if all the cities had the courage to approve and install such a thing, the world would be a better place.
