A new park is coming to the Lower Davenport neighbourhood! Macpherson Avenue Park will be one of the first new parks in the Green Line. Find out more about the Green Line Implementation Plan.

Project Timeline

  • Fall 2020 to Spring 2021: Community engagement and design development
  • Winter 2022: Detailed design and Hydro One approvals
  • Spring 2022: Hire a construction team
  • 2023: Construction complete

The timeline is subject to change.

Macpherson Avenue Park will transform a segment of the hydro corridor running parallel to Macpherson Avenue between Davenport Road and the transformer station to the west. This park will become the eastern gateway to the Green Line.

Macpherson Avenue Park builds on the conceptual master plan design guidelines established through community consultation for the Green Line Implementation Master Plan.

Phase 2: Preferred Concept Design

February and March 2021

The City held the second phase of consultations on the preferred park concept designs for the new park. Feedback was collected from a virtual public meeting, online questionnaire, input from a Community Resource Group and Indigenous Engagement. The detailed design of the park considers the important feedback from the community, along with internal stakeholders, project budget and the review and approvals by Hydro One before moving forward with construction.
