Osler Playground Revitalization - Community Visioning Session
With more and more people moving into the downtown core, it is critical to ensure that our green spaces function to meet the needs of all park users.
Osler Playground is an important green space in the Ossington community, with many local residents who enjoy the park on a daily basis. Many families with young children and dogs share the space, so it is crucial that we ensure the safety of everyone in the park. Over the last few years, Councillor Mike Layton who previously represented the Osler Playground area, had been working with local residents on solutions for a dogs-off-leash area at Osler.
I am pleased to announce that we have been able to identify funding for a full-scale revitalization of Osler Playground, which will include the addition of a dogs-off-leash-area (DOLA), playground upgrades, track improvements and other water feature and park improvements. In partnership with City Parks staff, we will be hosting a Community Visioning kick-off meeting to start our work together in re-visioning this critical community space:
