The City is improving the playground in Cruickshank Park. These improvements are part of an ongoing city-wide program to ensure playgrounds provide safe and accessible fun for many years to come!

  • Fall 2022: Community engagement (online survey)
  • Winter 2023: Detailed design and hire a construction team
  • Spring 2023: Construction starts
  • Fall 2023: Construction complete, playground reopens

The timeline is subject to change.

Cruickshank Park Playground is located at 2196 Weston Rd. The playground can be accessed from the stairs at Church Street and Weston Road and from the Humber River Recreational Trail.

The playground currently includes:

  • One swing set with:
    • four swings for ages two to five
    • two swings for ages five and up
  • A climbing structure with small slide and medium slide
  • Sand under all play areas

The playground will be redesigned using feedback from the community. The redesigned playground is proposed to include:

  • Playground equipment for ages two to 12
  • Additional seating
  • Accessible play equipment and an accessible pathway connecting to the playground area. This means that people of all abilities will be able to play at this playground
  • New lighting

Improvements will only be made in the general playground area. This will not include any new improvements to other areas of the park.
