A new 1000 m2 park is coming to 25 Holmes Ave., at the southwest corner of Holmes Avenue! When the project started, the park size was 1,000m2 (referred to as Park Area A) and designed with the help of community feedback collected in 2020. The park size has since expanded with an additional 1,657m2 (referred to as Park Area B). The design of this area of the park will be determined through the community engagement process at a later date.

  • Early Winter to Summer 2023: Community engagement
  • Summer 2023 to Spring 2024: Detailed design
