The timeline is subject to change.

Scarlett Mills Park is located at 235 Edenbridge Dr. in Etobicoke York. The City is adding a dogs off-leash area (OLA) in the open area northeast of the parking lot on Edenbridge Drive. The proposed OLA will be small in size at approximately 2000 square metres. The scope of work may include:

  • New fencing with entrance gates
  • New surfacing
  • Benches/seating elements
  • New tree plantings
  • New accessible pathway

The following plan illustrates the proposed location of the OLA. The boundary shown is approximate; final extents and layout will be determined through the design process.

December 2020


The City conducted an online survey to gather feedback on the overall design development of the off-leash area. The survey was available to complete from December 15 to January 8, 2021. The project team was notified by a member of the public that the survey link on the project page was broken and in response, the survey was extended to January 13, 2021.

The design of the off-leash area will be developed through consultation with the community via an online survey and a virtual public meeting. Project updates will be shared on the project webpage and via public communications such as mail-outs, social media and signs posted in the park.
