The City is updating Ivan Forrest Garden‘s frontage along Queen Street East!

Project Timeline

  • Summer 2020 to Spring 2021: Design development and community consultation phase
  • Fall 2021: Construction phase

The timeline is subject to change.

The aim of this project is to revitalize the park’s frontage along Queen Street East. Improvements will primarily include upgrades to the park entrances, pathways, seating areas and planting beds in the streetscape on the southern edge of the park.

The full scope of improvements will be determined through the consultation and design development process in response to budget and site constraints, as well as functional requirements for both the park and right-of-way.
