Ontario Place opened to the public on May 22, 1971, and closed in 2012 to seek design
proposals for a “new era” of private partnership and redevelopment. In 2013, A Proposal for Ontario Place responded to the Ontario Place Revitalization Panel’s search for a designed future for the post-utopian site.
