A public swimming pool, a floating restaurant and an amphitheatre could be coming to a derelict part of the city’s waterfront.
It can be cold, but not always. Yesterday, for example, there were tons of people out on Sherbourne Common and the promenade. The skating rink at Sherbourne is well used under normal non-pandemic conditions. Sugar Beach was packed with people.Very cool proposal - this area desperately needs an attraction. Are there any winter uses? Skating rink, outdoor curling? It would be very cold with the wind coming off the late.
This proposal is definitely a step-up over the early designs for the wave deck from about a decade ago:
So is this going to just be a general waterfront development discussion? Well, no, it's not, but the occasional short digression is reasonable. These Head-of-Slips that will appear in so many spots along Queens Quay are going to make such a change to the area that its not hard to see that...urbantoronto.ca

This version is a later iteration - there was an earlier version where there are a number of timber protrusions from a larger number of holes with smaller diameter.
Draw people to the edge of the water and let them linger?
Love the idea, especially the restaurant pier-- but there's no way they build a swimming pool here without some kind of fence around it. And where are all these kayaks and sailboats being launched from and stored?
I get that this is just a vision, but reality to going to take a bite out of this one.
