The City is improving the ponds in Milliken Park as part of a state-of-good-repair program to repair the stream circulation system and address drainage and pathway issues. The park will remain open during construction with some areas restricted during construction.
The timeline is subject to change.
Milliken Park is located at 5555 Steeles Ave. E. near McCowan Road in Scarborough. There are four ponds within the park which are connected by one stream. Water is circulated with a mechanical pump from the lowest point level at Pond D up to the highest point level at Pond A. The water then flows naturally from Pond A, B, C and D with gravity.
The stream system is being repaired in two phases in order to improve overall circulation, drainage and pathway issues.
This phase will focus on repairs to Pond D, which is the largest pond in the park and at the lowest elevation level:
This phase will focus on improvements to Pond A, which is at the highest point of elevation in the park:
Phase 2 is anticipated to start in April 2022.
This phase will focus on improvements to Pond B and C, which are located next to the park’s main road:
The timeline for Phase 3 construction is dependent on future funding approvals.
