Two new parks are coming to the Moss Park Neighbourhood as part of mixed-use development projects. The park designs will be determined through community engagement.
The name of this project has been corrected to Moss Park Neighbourhood from North St. Lawrence Neighbourhood.
The timeline is subject to change.

From June 8 to June 30, 2022, an online survey took place to collect the community’s ideas for the two new parks. The feedback will help develop a draft design for each park. The survey results will be shared here when available.
On Tuesday, June 21, the project team held two community pop-up events. The pop-ups consisted of project information boards and feedback boards that allowed community members to learn about the project and share their preferences for the design of the two new parks.
The pop-ups occurred on King Street East, west of Ontario Street from approximately 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Queen Street East, west of Ontario Street, from approximately 3 to 6 p.m.
Approximately 100 community members provided feedback at the pop-ups.
The feedback collected at these events will be shared here when available.
Community members could apply to join the Black Community Advisory Group from June 8 to June 30, 2022. Successful applicants will be contacted directly through email.
Thoughtful park design can help create a welcoming and inclusive space for all Toronto residents and is part of our work towards addressing anti-Black racism in our city. To ensure the perspective and needs of Black community members are reflected in the park design, a Black Community Advisory Group (BCAG) will act as an advisory body through the park design process.
The BCAG will meet in each phase of the design process (three meetings total) to review, deliberate, and discuss key project elements. The BCAG will be comprised of 12 to 15 members, including local Black community members as well as organizations that serve the local Black community.
No professional experience is needed to apply. Members of all ages in the local Black community and organizations that serve the local Black community are encouraged to apply.
Members of the BCAG will be provided with a $50 honorarium per meeting for their participation.

Indigenous Placekeeping (an approach to design that focuses on Indigenous histories and futures while connecting ecological, historical and cultural relationships to a place) will be incorporated into the design of both parks.
