Ward 16 Parks

The Parks, Forestry and Recreation department of the City of Toronto provided the following information in response to SAHRA’s request for information for further information after reviewing the ‘Park Plan 2013-2017’. The department prepared a report and maps with the information requested. The current list of capital projects for Ward 16 is based on 5, 10 and 20 year capital plans and informed by legacy strategies, “Our Common Grounds” (2004) and “Recreation Facilities Report” (2004).  As directed therein, much of their attention has been focused on maintaining the state of good repair of our existing assets. The long range plans may change as a result of the impending Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan.  Parks, Forestry and Recreation is in the process of hiring a consulting firm to conduct a comprehensive review of the current state of our facilities city-wide to recommend directions for the future.  There will be opportunity for community and stakeholder input later this year.
