Toronto’s balls of concrete

Posted on March 23rd, 2013 5 great comments. Room for one more!

(I just have to find the other one)

just one good push...

moist ball

cleaved ball


inner ball

Perhaps one of TCL’s readers can tell me what this thing is? I’d guess either a fixed compass or solar clock.

It’s still cold and windy and I booked it over to warmth and coffee. On the lookout for ball #2.

    Welcome to Toronto, Jacob!

    Unfortunately, I have no idea what this sculpture is, but I’m sure that there’s a plaque somewhere that describes it. If you’re interested, take York Street all the way to the lake. Walk past the Second Cup at Pier 6 and head farther down the embankment; it’s on the left side. And if you do find out, please share :)

    I was there on the weekend with my daughter. She busted her lip on the footpath there actually! No plaques anywhere which is a shame.
