Greening in Harbord Village - Community Open House

A critical part of building liveability in our downtown neighbourhoods is ensuring that we have enough green spaces to support a healthy and vibrant community. In many of our downtown communities, a good plan for green spaces includes park improvements, but also includes innovative ideas for laneway greening, parkettes, and streetscaping.

As you may know, I worked with the Harbord Village Residents’ Association (HVRA) to develop the Harbord Village Green Plan, a neighbourhood green plan that addresses the needs of our existing green spaces, and identifies opportunities to create new ones. Construction of the first phase, which includes in-street planters at four Harbord Village intersections, is set to begin next month.

Another exciting greening improvement coming to Harbord Village is the creation of a new public park at 666 Spadina Avenue. Through our hard work with the HVRA, City of Toronto staff, and the applicants of the infill development at at 666 Spadina Avenue, we have secured a brand new public park on site, that was approved at Council late last year.

Please join me and the HVRA at a community open house to discuss the vision of the new park at 666 Spadina, and submit your feedback on the next phase of implementation of the Harbord Village Green Plan.
