Exhibition Place splash pad a legacy to Pan Am Games
A new splash pad may seem like an unlikely spot for a public art installation that serves as a legacy for the Pan Am Games. After the sun goes down and the children clear out, however, one new addition to a Toronto park does just that.
The Pan Am splash pad, located in Centennial Park at Exhibition Place, is more than just a play area. Terraplan Landscape Architects designed the kid-friendly parkette around a cylindrical sculpture, which they emblazoned with the names of 51 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games sports.
At night, a light shines through the structure to create a serene, and rather magical-looking, reminder of the 2015 Games. It's small reminder, but sometimes the little things go a long way.
