As part of the condo development at 30 to 44 Zorra Street, the property developer (Altree) will construct a new park. The design and construction will be carried out in close consultation with City of Toronto, and when the park opens, it will be owned and maintained by the City’s Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division (PFR).

Project Timeline

  • 2019 to 2021: Park design, approvals, and public consultation
  • 2020 to 2022: 30 Zorra condominium construction
  • 2022 to 2023: Park construction and handover phase

This timeline is subject to change.

This new park in Ward 3 – Etobicoke-Lakeshore will serve the new residential neighbourhood being developed in place of suburban commercial plazas, and will also attract visitors from the existing residential neighbourhoods north of The Queensway. The new park will be 1,118m2 (0.27 acres, or 12,000 square feet) and located on Zorra Street. The new park is across the street to the west of the recently constructed Senator Marian Maloney Park.

October 23, 2019

PFR held a public meeting to provide residents with:

  • Information on the existing site
  • Examples of similar projects
  • Two design options for consideration

Read the full 30 Zorra Street Park Concept Presentation.

Feedback:

  • Participants were split evenly between favouring the two concepts.
  • Participants liked the ping pong table as a games feature.
  • Participants liked the water feature and shade structure in the Dogs Off-Leash Area.
  • Participants liked the variety of wood seatwalls in both concepts.
  • Participants liked the play mounds in the Dogs Off-Leash Area.
  • Several people felt that a Dogs Off-Leash Area would be well used.
