The City has completed the design of the new park in Lawrence Heights as part of the Lawrence-Allen redevelopment project. The yet-to-be-named park will include a playground, walkways and planting. In addition, it is anticipated that public art will be incorporated into the development of the park.
This timeline is subject to change.
The detailed design is completed. The future park site is not yet owned by the City and the developer is expected to deliver the base park condition (i.e. grass, water and sewer services) to the City by late 2024, weather permitting. Park construction is anticipated to start in spring 2025 and be completed by fall 2025, weather permitting.
The detailed design for the new park is nearly completed. The park site work cannot start until the adjacent roads and servicing to the park are complete. The timing for the park tender and construction is dependent on Toronto Community Housing Corporation’s (TCHC) timing on the development adjacent to the park.
