Online Survey

Fall 2023

An online survey will be posted on this page in late summer or early fall. The survey will ask for your feedback and preferences on multiple playground options. The design team will use the community feedback collected in this survey to develop a single playground design.

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

Elmbrook Park Playground is located at 2 Elmbrook Cres., between Rathburn Road and Eglinton Avenue West.

The playground currently includes:

  • One swing set with:
    • Two swings for ages two to five
    • Two swings for ages five and up
  • A combined junior and senior play structure with one medium and one small slide
  • A standalone large slide
  • A standalone climbing structure for ages five to 12
  • A spring toy
  • A see-saw
  • One pair of talk-tubes
  • Sand under all play areas

The playground will be redesigned using feedback from the community. The redesigned playground is proposed to include:

  • Playground equipment for ages two to 12
  • New seating
  • Engineered wood fibre playground surfacing
  • Accessible play equipment and an accessible pathway connecting to the playground area. This means that people of all abilities will be able to play at this playground.

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