The Backyard at RMG

Oshawa, ON

LeuWebb Projects worked in close collaboration with landscape architects Brook McIlroy and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery (RMG) to re-imagine the greenspace directly behind the gallery. With feedback from RMG’s Community Advisory Circle and staff team, plans reimagined the backyard as a new type of public space that incorporates creativity, play, and art.

Featuring a new shade and performance space, seating, gardens, and barrier-free accessibility to the creek, visitors are able to explore nature differently, connect with their community, and dream new possibilities. The reinvigorated outdoor space activates and expands the possibilities of the Gallery, with attendees to concert series and summer camps able to experience the joy of free access to a greenspace.

The RMG received funding support for these improvements from the Government of Canada through FedDev Ontario. Additional support was also received through the federal Enabling Accessibility Fund, the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s (OTF) Community Building Fund, and the City of Oshawa.
