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 early 2019 with completion early 2020.

The location of the park and the proposed expansion.

The new park design is an ideal opportunity to provide a creative vision for a major park and was created in consultation with the local community and general public (see Consultation section below).

The new park:

  • Integrates city and community recreation and leisure needs.
  • Addresses community-based issues.
  • Reflects sustainable and environmentally sound landscape design and management.
