The timeline is subject to change.

A new park is being designed for the site at 150 Harrison St., located at the corner of Dovercourt Road and Harrison Street. The park is part of a Modular Housing Initiative to build small-scale infill housing to connect people experiencing homelessness with homes and appropriate supports to help them achieve housing stability. The City is leading the modular housing component of the project, as well as the park design and construction.

The proposed park is in the initial design phase which will be developed through consultation with the community. The proposed plan for the new park may include the following:

  • An open lawn area
  • A new playground
  • Seat walls
  • New benches
  • Game tables
  • New trees and planting beds

The site will require environmental remediation to remove any contaminated soil related to prior land use. This will occur prior to the construction of the park.

The site plan for the new park at 150 Harrison, located on the south east corner of Dovercourt Road and Harrison Street.
