Located in the heart of Toronto's new Rivertowne community just east of the Don River, this 0.95 hectare park opened in 2012 and features a basketball court, playground, splash pad and a small community garden. It also has a welcoming open space, many trees and great design that pays homage to the nearby Don River by incorporating an urban river theme with areas for seating, strolling and playing.
Originally a small parkette, this park was expanded and renovated as part of the process of Canada's first conversion of a public housing development into a dynamic new mixed-income neighbourhood. Toronto Community Housing acted as the developer of the park on behalf of the City, the park was designed by Janet Rosenberg and Studio, and the Ralph Thornton Centre was a core community partner through an extensive community engagement process to ensure that the park was designed with input from local residents and would become a great focal point for the neighbourhood.
