Hillsdale Avenue Park is being expanded as a result of a new residential development in the neighbourhood. The City will be engaging with community members to ensure the park design meets the needs of the community.

Project Timeline

  • Summer 2021: Community engagement and design development
  • Late Summer to Early Fall: Hire construction team
  • Fall 2021: Construction begins
  • Late Winter 2021: Construction complete

The timeline is subject to change.

As part of residential developments in the neighbourhood, the former Hillsdale Avenue Parkette is being expanded to a new 1150 m2 park on Yonge Street, south of Soudan and north of Hillsdale Road.

The City is working on the design and construction of the new park, which will include:

  • Seating areas and benches
  • An accessible walkway connecting Soudan and Hillsdale Avenues along the western boundary of the site
  • Horticultural pollinator plantings

The park concept will be developed through consultation with key stakeholders and the wider community. Surface materials and benches for all concept options are to be determined.
