The City is planning improvements to the playground in Old Sheppard Park as part of an enhancement project to modernize the existing playground with new equipment, seating and an accessible pathway.

Project Timeline

  • Summer/Fall 2020: Design and public engagement
  • Spring/Summer 2021: Construction begins

The timeline is subject to change.

Old Sheppard Park is a 1.2-hectare park located near Sheppard Avenue East and Highway 404. The existing park playground will be enhanced with the following landscape improvements:

  • Accessible pathway
  • Accessible play surfacing
  • New equipment for ages 2.5 to 14 years
  • Additional accessible seating with sightlines to the playground

An Online Survey and Park Pop-Up event will take place in summer/fall 2020 to present the project concept and gather feedback from the community on the playground equipment options. Information will be posted here when the details are confirmed.
