Canoe Landing Park: New Playground

As CityPlace has rapidly developed and grown to near completion in recent years, we have been working hard together to ensure there are appropriate community facilities and infrastructure to support a diverse, healthy, thriving neighbourhood. The Fort York Library and Canoe Landing Park are already open and heavily used. Later this year construction will be finished on the two new elementary schools, child care facility, and Canoe Landing Community Recreation Centre right beside the park.

It is clear from walking down the street in CityPlace and seeing all the strollers that more and more residents are raising a family in CityPlace. In my consultations with community members I have heard that traditional playground equipment is needed in the neighbourhood, so I am happy to share the news of upcoming improvements to Canoe Landing Park!

New playground equipment will be added to Canoe Landing Park immediately south of the existing children's splash pad during the autumn of this year. The playground is being designed with a safe rubber play surface and will accommodate both young toddlers and school aged children. It will also have seating for parents and caregivers to enjoy while they watch children play.
