  • Winter 2021: Construction complete

The timeline is subject to change.

Roywood Park is a 3.3-hectare park near Victoria Park Avenue and York Mills Road. The children’s playground within the park, located near Lynedock Crescent and Roywood Drive, is being improved with the following features:

  • New accessible play equipment
  • An accessible pathway to the playground
  • Additional seating
  • Rubberized play surfacing

The City is proposing to replace the playground equipment in the same location while adding seating and an accessible walkway to the playground. The existing trees in the playground area will be preserved. The scope of work will not include any new water or lighting features.
