A STREET RUNS THROUGH

In keeping with the  “Garden City” type of planning  by the architects who designed Regent Park in the 1950’s,  its inward facing design separated the residents from the city grid.

The “Garden City”, once a focal point  of the five Dickinson Towers (two have been demolished), is soon to become the street which will connect Gerrard to Shutter. The Peace Garden is gone and the waterscape teeters at the edge of the construction. The remaining trees and playscape will soon vanish.
