The City is updating Queens Avenue Parkette in order to better serve the community!

Project Timeline

  • Winter/Spring 2021: Community engagement
  • Spring to late Summer 2021: Design development and hire a construction team
  • Fall 2021: Construction begins

The timeline is subject to change.

Queens Avenue Parkette is a small park located at 94 Superior Ave. in Etobicoke York. The playground equipment has reached the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced. The City is proposing to replace the play equipment in the park and add new amenities that will better serve the community. The improvements in the park may include:

  • New play equipment
  • New play surfacing
  • New seating elements
  • Accessible pathway

The final design will be developed through consultation with the community.
