Phase 1 of the Master Plan Implementation is currently underway. The Master Plan will be used as a guide to confirm the priorities included in this phase (subject to available funding).

The City completed the Eglinton Park Master Plan in 2019 and is working towards the park improvements in phases based on the priorities identified in the Master Plan and available budget. The Eglinton Park Master Plan is not in an accessible format so cannot be posted publicly at this time. If you would like access to this document, please contact the Senior Project Coordinator.

Eglinton Park is an 8.5-hectare park serving active recreational uses and providing a passive green refuge for both the local Yonge-Eglinton community and the wider neighbourhood. Due to the park’s significant size and location, there is a need to implement a park improvement plan that meet the needs of the diverse and growing population.

In 2018, the City requested the services of a professional design consultant to work with various internal stakeholders, user groups, and the public to develop a Master Plan to inform the programming and development of Eglinton Park. The Master Plan was completed in 2019 and identified priority areas for implementation.

The implementation of the Master Plan will use the priority areas identified in the Master Plan to inform Phase 1 (up to the current available funding). Should future funding be available, additional phases may occur or Phase 1 may be adjusted.
