Toronto City Hall Podium Green Roof

I've never been up this ramp at City Hall ... I've never seen it open before.

So I up I went.

And I discovered the Toronto City Hall Podium Green Roof.

From concrete to living garden, the Toronto City Hall podium roof, where visiting dignitaries were once welcomed at the “front door” of the Council Chambers, has reopened as a public green roof garden.

Approximately 3,250 m2 (35,000 square feet) of concrete on the podium roof has been transformed into living vegetation to reduce the building’s environmental impact and for residents and visitors to enjoy all year around.

It was cool to walk around up there.

Check it out if you get a chance.
