English Bay Cactus Club

Acton Ostry’s design for a new English Bay restaurant for the Board of Parks and Recreation (really, that’s what you should call them) has raised a few issues since it opened.

The incredibly busy bike path above the new building has two pedestrian routes crossing at right angles to get to the beach, and the restaurant, leading to potential conflict and confusion. The building itself can also be seen down Denman Street, which wasn’t really the case before.

There’s no question that the new structure is a huge improvement over the shack that stood there before – and it’s likely the food is better as well.
