The format of consultation will be modified to align with the advice of the City’s Medical Officer of Health to practice physical distancing to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19. For more information on the current health situation and the City’s response to COVID-19, please visit the City’s COVID-19 page.

Achieving design excellence is a key objective for parks and public realm in the Midtown neighbourhood. Incorporating new sustainable strategies, maximizing tree growth life span, creating flexible and integrated open spaces, and designing “Parks Without Borders” will establish a high design standard and create a complete community.

The Eglinton Green Line is one of the Public Realm Moves showcased in the Midtown Parks and Public Realm Plan. It will provide a linear and landscaped promenade connecting eight blocks along Eglinton Avenue, from Eglinton Park to the upcoming Mount Pleasant Station. Eglinton Green Line was presented at the Design Review Panel in February 2020 and received positive feedback and complete support for this generous signature linear green space that adds life and vitality to public life along Eglinton Avenue.
