ACCIDENTAL WILDERNESS:
THE ORIGINS AND ECOLOGY OF
TORONTO'S TOMMY THOMPSON PARK
TORONTO, ON

EN_
ACCIDENTAL WILDERNESS IS a rich
and lyrical collection of essays curated
by internationally recognized landscape
architect and original designer of Tommy
Thompson Park, Walter H. Kehm,
complemented by a stunning collection
of photographs by renowned landscape
photographer Robert Burley. The book
documents the entire planning process for
the park including the park's master plan
principles and design; the native-plant
succession process; the park's unique flora
and fauna; public advocacy; and public
recreation in the park and its effect on
mental, physical, and spiritual health.
The essays in Accidental Wilderness
elucidate the complex development and
unique character of Tommy Thompson
Park from a variety of perspectives. Kehm's
" Conservation by Design " approach placed
the biological needs of nature as the basis
for park planning and set the stage for a
remarkable story of natural succession.

The natural regeneration that followed
was startling. Once a barren, rubble-filled
construction site, Tommy Thompson Park
is now one of the most ecologically rich and
biodiverse parks in the Greater Toronto
Area. As policy makers begin to recognize
public parks as essential elements of
natural capital, this book offers a new park
model that changes how cities address
climate change and the mental, physical
and spiritual health of its people.
JURY'S COMMENTS
This book is a great account of how sites
reclaimed freely by nature can become
beautiful, delightful and highly valued
environments and landscapes. It also
illustrates in vivid terms how advocacy and
public pressures can lead to a collective
awareness of the value of such places and,
in the case of Tommy Thompson Park,
how they can lead to publicly managed
park projects. The content is well balanced;
it includes description of the park's

remarkable in revealing of
how landscape architects
can be mindful of natural
processes and integrate
human spaces into fragile
environments. "
ecological features and fabric; first-person,
experiential accounts of the park's evolution;
and technical assessments of the outcomes
of the project. In itself, the photographic
essay communicates a deep sense of place.
This book is truly remarkable in revealing of
how landscape architects can be mindful
of natural processes and integrate human
spaces into fragile environments. The book
shares a fundamental reflection (addressed
to professionals and to the public) on how
projects of this kind come to fruition, how
their inception and their success depend
on people and their motivations, and the
importance of time.
