Apply to be a member of the Community Advisory Committee by May 28, 2023 to help develop the Parks District Plan and park designs.

A group of new parks are coming to the Six Points neighbourhood in Etobicoke Centre. The new parks will include Etobicoke Centre Park (5,500 m2, a bit larger than 12 basketball courts), Dunkip Park (2,210 m2, about the size of a mini soccer field), and an expansion of the existing Six Points Park (1,600 m2, a bit larger than three NBA basketball courts). A fourth new park, referred to as Linear Park (2,708 m2, about the size of a baseball diamond), will be converted into parkland in the future. These new parks are part of the City’s Parkland Strategy.

A Park District Vision and Plan will be developed to act as a framework for the future design of each park. Visit the Project Timelines section to learn about the different timelines for each park project

Level of Engagement

This project has been classified as a Collaborate project based on the International Association of Public Participation‘s Public Participation Spectrum. This means we aim to partner with the public, stakeholders and rightsholders in each aspect of the design process, including the development of design options and the identification of a preferred design.

This phase of the community engagement process started in summer 2022 and included stakeholder mapping, community surveys, and meetings with park staff, Urban Indigenous groups, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation (MCFN).

Anticipated phase outcomes include:

  • Vision Statement
  • Design Principles
  • A Community Advisory Committee (CAC) to help advance community feedback during each phase

June 2022

Online Thought Exchange Activity

From June 15 to July 1, 2022, an online interactive thought exchange activity was available to collect community insight on the new parks coming to the Six Points neighbourhood. The survey received 1,661 responses and was promoted using targeted social media advertising, signage at the future park site, and this page. The feedback will help inform the development of the draft design options for the park district.

During this phase of the community engagement process, the City will work with residents and stakeholders to define an overall Vision for the Park District Plan and Design Principles which will guide the development of design options for Six Points Park Expansion and Dunkip Park.

Anticipated Community Engagement Activities in this phase:

  • Online Survey
  • Community Advisory Committee Meeting
  • Community Workshop

Anticipated phase outcomes include:

  • A confirmed Vision Statement
  • Confirmed Design Principles
  • Design ideas to inform the development of design options

During this phase of the community engagement process, the City and its design consultant will use the outcomes of Community Engagement Phase 1B to finalize the Park District Plan and develop design options (called concept options) for Six Points Park Expansion and Dunkip Park. The design options will be presented to the community for feedback to help inform the development of a preferred design option for each park in Community Engagement Phase 3.

Anticipated Community Engagement Activities in this phase:

  • Online Survey
  • Community Advisory Committee Meeting
  • Public Meeting

Anticipated phase outcomes include the completion of the Park District Plan and the selection of a preferred design option for each park.

During this phase of the community engagement process, the City will share a preferred design option for Six Points Park Expansion and for Dunkip Park with the community. Once the preferred designs are confirmed, the project will move into the detailed design phase, where the design team will finalize the preferred designs by working through the technical details and developing detailed plans and drawings to be used by the construction contractor.

Anticipated Community Engagement Activities in this phase include:

  • Online Survey
  • Public Open House

Anticipated phase outcomes include a refined preferred design for each park.

The new parks are a result of the recently-completed Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration project which realigned 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.

This project has two goals. The first goal is to create an overall Park District Vision and Plan for all four new park sites which will act as a framework for the future design of each park. The second goal will focus on the design and construction of Six Points Park Expansion and Dunkip Park.

The Park District Vision and Plan and new park designs will be informed by stakeholder and community engagement. The names for each park are not final and are subject to change at a later date.

Programming in the new parks may include:

  • Multi-sport/basketball court
  • Tennis/pickleball court
  • Open green space
  • 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
  • New plantings (e.g. trees, shrubs etc.)
  • Horticulture areas
  • Lighting
  • Accessible pathways
