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 the City of Toronto, and when the park opens, it will be owned and maintained by the City.
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.
In February 2020 the City asked for feedback on two proposed concepts for the new park. We received thoughtful feedback from 37 people in the neighbourhood. Overall, 40% of all respondents were in favour of concept 1 – plaza, while 49% were in favour of concept 2 – dog off-leash area. The remaining 11% did not have a preference.
Based on this feedback, the City has directed the consultant team to develop concept 2 – dog off-leash area. In addition to the off-leash area, this concept will also include greenery, seating and shade, as well as some room for people to gather outside of the dog off-leash area.
Across the street at Senator Marian Maloney Park are many additional amenities, such as a playground, splash pad, fountain, green space and open plaza gathering area.
All the other great suggestions, such as sports courts, sports fields, ping pong, and outdoor fitness equipment, will be kept in mind for future parks in the area.
The City held a public meeting to provide residents with:
