Mark Lawson, Vice President, Communications & External Relations, Therme Canada, says: “Having signed a long-term lease at Ontario Place, we are delivering on our commitment to create an iconic, global attraction along with new privately funded and maintained public space.”
The redevelopment will include shoreline restoration, 11.8 acres of freely accessible public space, enhanced trails, a public beach, new wetlands and aquatic habitats, and 4.1 acres of green roof that connects the building to the surrounding natural landscape.
Therme Group was selected by the Government of Ontario through an international bidding competition held in 2019 and has subsequently signed a long-term ground lease at Ontario Place.
The development will be a family-friendly experience focused on fun, relaxation and wellbeing. There will be indoor and outdoor pools, waterslides and a wave pool, natural spaces to relax, sports performance and recovery services, and botanical gardens
