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.
The timeline is subject to change.
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 following two goals.
This phase will focus on creating an overall Park District Vision and Plan which will act as a framework for the future design of each park. Feedback from community and stakeholder engagement will help inform the Park District Vision and Plan.
This phase will focus on the design and construction of Etobicoke Centre Park, the largest of the four park sites. The design and construction of the other parks will be completed at a later stage as separate projects.
The public parks in this new park district will be designed to be accessible, inclusive and safe and will accommodate a range of both passive and recreational amenities.
The design for the new Etobicoke Centre Park may include:
