Renaming of Beltline Park -

The Kay Gardner Beltline Park (North Toronto)

The Toronto Community Council recommends the adoption of the following report (September 27, 1999) from the Commissioner of Economic Development, Culture and Tourism:


To grant authority for the renaming of Beltline Park to The Kay Gardner Beltline Park.

Source of Funds:

There is no impact to the budget.


It is recommended that:

1. the Beltline Park be officially renamed The Kay Gardner Beltline Park.;

2. the appropriate Civic officials be authorized to take whatever action is necessary to give effect to the foregoing.


The Economic Development and Parks Committee on September 13, 1999, had before it a communication (August 23, 1999) from Councillor Michael Walker, North Toronto, recommending that staff from the Economic Development, Culture and Tourism Department, Parks and Recreation Division, in consultation with Heritage Toronto staff, be requested to report on renaming the Beltline Park which runs right through Ward 22 in the old City of Toronto, the "Kay Gardner Beltline Park" in recognition of former Councillor Kay Gardner who was instrumental in creating the park back in 1989.

Former Councillor Kay Gardner was passionate in seeking the security and development of the Beltline Park. This linear park serves families and residents of all ages. It is well used by pedestrians, cyclists, joggers and dog walkers.

Staff from the Parks and Recreation Division and Heritage Toronto have reviewed this matter and support the renaming proposal. The renaming recommendation meets the criteria of the Revision to Parkland Naming Policy which was adopted by City Council on November 25, 26, and 27, 1998.


That Beltline Park be renamed to "The Kay Gardner Beltline Park".
