Two New Parkettes Coming to Ossington Avenue
The Ossington Business Improvement Area (Ossington BIA) and the City of Toronto will be creating new public spaces on City-owned land at two flankages along Ossington Avenue, including at Argyle Avenue, and Foxley Avenue. The locations were identified as areas for improvement in the BIA's Streetscape Master Plan.
Each of these new public spaces will have seating, plantings, trees, and public art, and will incorporate green standards and high quality surface treatment. The parkettes will complement one another, thereby visually unifying the BIA.
This project is jointly funded by the Ossington BIA and the City of Toronto. Construction of the parkettes will begin in 2021 by City-approved contractors, and once completed, maintained by the BIA. This City and BIA partnership is focused on reimagining the public realm, and is a critical element of building livable neighbourhoods and supporting a vibrant local economy.
