The City is planning improvements to Cashman Park. The Project Team will be engaging the local community to determine a new site-appropriate park enhancement that will meet the needs of park users.

Project Timeline

  • August 2020: Community consultation
  • Fall/Winter 2020: Design and development

The timeline is subject to change.

Cashman Park is located near Langmuir Crescent and Humbercrest Boulevard. In 2019, the playground structure was removed due to safety concerns regarding the equipment’s deteriorating condition. A swing set and spring toy are the only equipment currently in the park’s playground.

As the playground is located on a hill, replacing the playground equipment in its previous location presents some design and accessibility challenges. One of these challenges is the requirement to include an accessible pathway to an updated playground. To accommodate an accessible pathway to the previous playground location, significant site removals, grading and retaining for a paved switchback pathway would be required. This would leave very little space on the park site for playground equipment.

Given these constraints, the City is consulting with community members to determine an alternative park improvement that does not include a playground. Instead, we are recommending improvements focused along the lower edge of the park and want to get community input before any designs are presented.

August to September 2020

Online Survey

The online survey gathered feedback on the community’s vision for the park enhancements. Feedback from the survey will be considered in the development of the concept plan options.
