The City is planning improvements to the playground in Charlton Park! These improvements are part of an ongoing city-wide program to ensure playgrounds provide safe and accessible fun for all.

Project Timeline

  • March to April 2021: Community engagement and finalizing the design
  • Spring 2021: Hiring a construction team
  • Summer to Fall 2021: Construction
  • Winter 2021: Construction complete

The timeline is subject to change.

Charlton Park is located at 166 Charlton Blvd., near Bathurst Street and Finch Avenue West in North York. The park features a children’s playground and open green space. The playground is being redesigned based on the community’s feedback. The improvements may include:

  • New accessible play equipment
  • An accessible pathway to the playground
  • Additional seating
  • Wood chip safety surfacing (Engineered Wood Fiber)

The City is proposing to replace the playground equipment in the same location while adding seating and an accessible walkway to the playground. All playground equipment replaced will meet accessibility standards.
