Earlscourt Park is located at 1200 Lansdowne Ave., near St. Clair Avenue West and Caledonia Road. Pending budget approval, the City is adding new pathways at the west side of Earlscourt Park. These pathway improvements were initiated by a group of local residents and are supported by the local Councillor.

The new pathways will connect to the existing park pathways, entrances and amenities and will improve accessibility and connectivity throughout the park.

February 2020

Open House

On February 25, the City, in coordination with the local Councillor’s Office, held an open house at the Joseph J. Piccininni Community Centre. An online survey was also conducted to see if there was interest and support from the community for additional pathways.

Online Survey

An online survey was available from February 5 to March 13, 2020. The survey received 193 responses.

  • 46% of respondents are very or somewhat satisfied with the current placement of pathways within the park
  • 41% of respondents describe their current ability to move through and access amenities in the park as either very easy or somewhat easy
  • 67% of respondents preferred option 2 as it would extremely improve or somewhat improve their experience walking through the park
  • 60% of respondents preferred option 3 as it would extremely improve or somewhat improve their experience walking through the park
