Dr Robert Hanea, CEO of Therme Group, described Therme as “a natural urban oasis where people can have fun, relax and unwind from their busy lives – boosting their physical and mental health”.
Ontario Place is a waterfront location that served as a tourism destination between 1971 and 2012. “The future of Ontario Place will be defined by how successful it can be connecting people to the water,” Hanea added.
“Through our technology and by engaging the community, Therme and our partners will add a new architectural landmark that will play a role in bringing more people back to the waterfront capturing the original spirit of Ontario Place from 50 years ago.”
