The City is improving the outdoor playground at Armour Heights Community Centre as part of an ongoing program to enhance playgrounds and play spaces across the city so that everyone can experience the joys and benefits of play for years to come.

  • Summer June 2024: Community engagement (online survey)
  • Winter/Spring 2025: Detailed design and hire a construction team
  • Summer/Fall 2025: Construction starts
  • Late Fall 2025: Construction complete, playground re-opens

The timeline is subject to change.

Online Survey

Summer 2024

An online survey will be posted on this page in the summer. The survey will ask for your feedback and preferences on playground options. The design team will use this community feedback to develop the final playground design.

The results of the survey will also be shared on this page.

Armour Heights Community Centre Playground is located outside the community centre along Avenue Road, southwest of Wilson Avenue.

The playground currently includes:

  • a junior climbing structure with a small slide
  • two sand tables
  • two spring riders
  • a swing
  • a sensory panel
  • sand under all play areas
  • four benches

The playground will be redesigned using community feedback and is proposed to include:

  • playground equipment for ages five to 12
  • upgraded seating
  • engineered wood fibre surfacing
  • an accessible pathway to the playground area

The play equipment and pathway connecting to the playground area will comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). Learn moreĀ aboutĀ how playgrounds are made accessible.

Improvements will only be made in the general playground area and will not include any new water or lighting features or improvements to other areas of the park.
