The City is studying the parks and outdoor spaces in and around the Kennedy Park and Ionview neighbourhoods to identify opportunities for improvement. These improvements could include upgrades to existing parks, new parks, and better access and connections to parks and public spaces. The findings of this study will guide short and long-term improvements to the local park system.

  • Summer to Fall 2022: Background review and analysis
  • Fall 2022 to Spring 2023: Community engagement
  • Spring to Fall 2023: Develop Parks Plan

The timeline is subject to change.

Interactive Map Activity

A Social Pinpoint activity was available until December 1, 2022. The activity involved an interactive map that allowed participants to drop pins and leave comments on precise locations. The project team collected feedback on what is working, what isn’t and where in the study area.

In 2019, City Council adopted the Parkland Strategy, which identified the Kennedy Park and Ionview neighbourhoods in Scarborough as a priority area for parks planning and acquisitions. As a next step, a parkland study will be conducted to investigate opportunities to improve the local parks system. The findings will be developed into a Parks Plan, which will be used as a roadmap to inform decision-making and budget allocation for years to come.
