The City of Toronto and Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) are partnering to improve the Monsignor Fraser College (Annex Campus) asphalt schoolyard. This will increase opportunities for expanded programming and new green space for the students and Seaton Village community.

A drawn plan of the where the proposed improvements will be
The proposed design for the schoolyard.

The proposed enhancements include:

  • removal of asphalt schoolyard, south of school building
  • partial removal of existing perimeter fencing
  • new lawn areas
  • new pathways
  • informal outdoor classroom and gathering space
  • community garden
  • benches and picnic tables
  • trees


Monsignor Fraser College is located at 700 Markham Street, north of Bloor Street West and west of Bathurst Street. TCDSB, owners of the 0.3-hectare site entered into a long-term agreement with the City to create a new public space open to the community at large.

Construction started in late September 2019. Temporary fencing will remain around the park until the new grass is ready for foot traffic. Anticipated removal of fence is May 2020. We appreciate your patience during this time.

A public consultation meeting was held in January 2018 to share a preliminary proposed plan, receive public feedback and discuss priorities for improvements. This meeting built off previous community consultation hosted by the TCDSB prior to the City’s involvement.
