We’ve almost finished installing the weathering steel pavilions at the East Point Park Bird Sanctuary in Toronto.

The main pavilion, known as the Viewing Pavilion, will serve as the main gathering space and lookout with views to Lake Ontario on one side and to a pond on the other. The laser-cut screens of the pavilion display the English and scientific names of the migratory birds that have been spotted on site, and exhibit a pattern inspired by the flock formations of these birds.

Nestled up to the bank of the pond is the new Bird Blind, which

provides visitors with “architectural camouflage” so they can observe birds at close range without disturbing the site’s biota.

Be sure to visit the park this fall to enjoy a rare and heightened experience of our city’s extraordinary bird culture and wildlife!
