Toronto, Canada by the 2050, will be facing longer growing seasons, shorter/milder winters, more severe weather (in the form of heavier rainfalls over fewer days) and more days of 30C or higher temperatures. Especially hard hit will be the urban parks. Heat and extreme weather events will take their toll in the form of uprooted trees (from higher wind velocities), root exposure (due to flash flooding) and general stress from increased soil compaction due to more of the public seeking cooler parks. The general public is mostly unaware of the challenges ahead for their beloved parks. This presentation is an attempt to educate and inform.
