S.A.D.R.A. Park Expansion
As part of the development at 1800 St. Clair Avenue West, the property developer (Diamond Kilmer) is constructing an addition to S.A.D.R.A Park (Silverthorn and District Ratepayers Association). The design and construction will be carried out in close consultation with City of Toronto. When the park opens, it will be owned and maintained by the City’s Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division (PFR).
