Fredrick Todd: Early 20th Century Visions that Shaped Canada’s Capital

One hundred years ago, landscape architect and planner Fredrick Todd provided insight and direction that would shape Ottawa and the Capital Region. Designer of some of Canada’s most beloved spaces, including Montreal’s Mount Royal Park and Toronto’s Leaside, recent research has now uncovered long lost aspects of his contribution to the capital – how he captured the power of the landscape and established the green space system that would define a capital.

Peter Jacobs, Professor, School of Landscape Architecture, Université de Montréal, provided an overview of Todd’s career.
David Gordon, Associate Professor, School of Urban & Regional Planning, Queen’s University, explored Todd’s contributions to the Capital Region.
