The City of Toronto is undertaking a Master Plan review exercise for Centennial Park.

In 2018 the City of Toronto requested the services of a professional consulting firm to review the 2008 Centennial Park Master Plan. This firm consulted with various stakeholders, permit holders, user groups and the public to develop a report to inform the Centennial Park Master Plan update.

The Master Plan Update and Implementation Plan scope of work includes

  • Communication Plan
  • Background Review, Inventory and Investigation
  • Concept Design and Preliminary Master Plan Update
  • Master Plan Update and Implementation Plan

Phase 1

Phase 1 is complete and will help inform decision making in the next steps of the Master Plan Update process.

Phase 2

In July 2019, a Request For Proposal (RFP) for Phase 2 – the Centennial Park Master Plan Update was issued to review the findings of Phase 1. Other milestones include:

  • Summer 2019:  Award Phase 2 to the consultant
  • Fall 2019: Background Review
  • Winter 2019: Concept Design, Master Plan draft options
  • Spring-Summer 2019: Master Plan Update and Implementation Plan

Past Consultations

A final report of these consultations is under review.

May 4, 2019: Public Consultation

The meeting began with a presentation of the 2008 Master Plan and what we heard from prior internal and permit holder consultations. This was followed by a question and answer period.

After the presentation, smaller discussions were held around thematic displays for additional input and comment.

Following the Open House, were two separate hike-shops led by City staff and the public facilitator consultant. These hikes focused on connecting participants with both natural and recreation areas in the park creating dynamic discussions about real park amenities.

April 13, 2019: Permit Holder Workshop

Discussions included a review of the strengths, challenges and opportunities within the park.
