The Fort York Visitor Centre is now open on the south side of Garrison Common. Designed by the award-winning Canadian team of Patkau Architects Inc / Kearns Mancini Architects Inc, this new facility helps the Fort tell its 200-year story and orient visitors to the entire 43-acre National Historic Site.
