The existing Grand Avenue Park is a one-hectare parcel of green space on the east side of Grand Avenue and north of the Metrolinx Lakeshore Rail corridor. The City acquired additional land next to Grand Avenue Park to create a new, approximately five-hectare (12 acres), park. The working title for the design of the new park is Grand Manitoba Park.

Phase 1 construction is anticipated to start in Fall 2018 with completion in Fall 2019.

Community consultation event dates and times will be posted in late February 2018, with two events tentatively scheduled for March and April 2018.
