We heard your vision for the new park at 261 Nairn Ave! Review the proposed concept designs and playground equipment and tell us what you think.

A new park is coming to 261 Nairn Ave. The City will be engaging the community to help determine the park design and amenities.

The name of this park has not been decided. The name will be determined through community engagement at a later date. The City of Toronto is currently reviewing its Property Naming Policy. Until this review is completed, only park naming or renaming requests received before October 1, 2020 will be processed at this time.
