A group of new parks is coming to the Six Points neighbourhood in Etobicoke Centre. The new parks will include Etobicoke Centre Park (5,500 m2), Dunkip Park (2,210 m2), and an expansion of existing Six Points Park (1,600 m2). A fourth new park referred to as Linear Park (2,708 m2) will be converted into parkland in the future. These new parks are part of the City’s Parkland Strategy.

The final names of the parks have not been decided and will be determined through community engagement at a later date.

Online Survey

From June 15 to July 1, 2022, community members completed an online survey to share their ideas for the new park and rate other people’s ideas. In total, more than 1,600 people participated, providing about 1,400 ideas for the park and over 48,000 idea ratings. A summary of the survey and a link to all thoughts shared will be posted to this web page.

The new parks are a result of the Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration project which realigns several roads, including Kipling Avenue, Bloor Street West and Dundas Street West. The road reconfiguration has created four new park sites and several new development areas. The parks will surround the new Etobicoke Civic Centre and Civic Plaza, which is a separate project that is not within the scope of this project.

The project will focus on the development of three new parks (Six Points Expansion, Dunkip and Etobicoke Centre).

The first step will be to create an overall Park District Plan which will act as a framework for the future design of each park. The design and construction of each park will occur in sequence.

The Park District Plan and new park designs will be informed by stakeholder and community engagement.

Programming in the new parks may include:

  • Multi-sport court (e.g. basketball, tennis, pickleball, etc.)
  • Sport field
  • Small skateboarding area (i.e. skate spot)
  • Playground and/or water play (e.g. splash pad)
  • Park entrance/gateway feature
  • Dogs off-leash area
  • Indigenous placemaking and placekeeping
  • Integrated art/design feature
  • Seating and gathering areas
  • Green space and new plantings (e.g. trees, shrubs etc.)
  • Lighting
  • Accessible pathways
