It's finished!

We are very happy to announce the completion of the restoration and installation of the Victorian landing stage in Willow Square on Ward's Island. Thanks to the City of Toronto, Clifford Restoration, Stevens Burgess Architects and a lot of Islanders who never lost faith (although some of us ALMOST did), it was completed in time for the first snowfall of the season.

 Except for a few pieces cast to match by the restoration team, 
all the wrought iron is original from over 100 years ago

The wooden slat benches were incorporated with the restoration

A new 2' diameter pebble mosaic has been added
