This timeline is subject to change.
Blantyre Park outdoor pool is slated for state-of-good-repair work. In light of this upcoming work and development projected along Kingston Road, staff have undertaken a community engagement process to develop a Park Vision for Blantyre Park. The Park Vision will become a framework to guide future investment. It will also become a planning and design tool to guide future park improvements.
The public engagement process is being led by the City of Toronto.
