  • Fall 2024: Construction complete, playground reopens

The timeline is subject to change.

Pemberton Parkette Playground is located at 92 Pemberton Ave., near the corner of Willowdale Avenue and Finch Avenue East, in the centre of the park.

The playground currently includes:

  • One swing set with:
    • One swing for ages five and up
    • One swing for ages two to five
  • A junior climbing structure and small slide
  • 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
  • Additional 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.
