The initiative for proposed park improvement to Sumach Shuter Parkette was a result of the Corktown Parks Master Plan that was prepared from 2014 to 2015. The Master Plan’s purpose was to develop a holistic approach to park rehabilitation, taking into account changing demographics in the neighbourhood, increased population density and changing recreational tendencies.

Project Timeline

Construction for the improvements to Sumach-Shuter Parkette is anticipated to begin in early 2022.

Park improvements to Sumach Shuter will include:

  • playground improvements
  • a new splash pad to replace the wading pool
