Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan adopted by City Council
We are pleased to announce that the Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan was unanimously adopted by City Council on November 9, 2017.
The Plan was adopted with four amendments, which require that Parks, Forestry and Recreation:
1. Further engage Ward Councillors representing areas of extremely high growth as part of implementation planning
2. Work with the Toronto District School Board to determine the terms and conditions that would allow use of Section 37 and/or Section 42 funds for refurbishment of school pools that were built by the City of Toronto and are currently under long term lease to the City
3. Conduct an environmental scan of sport bubble enclosure innovations, and update life cycle estimates and operating impacts of such enclosures
4. Explore the possibility of enclosing either the Grandravine or Northwood Community Centre outdoor pools as part of the evaluation of aging and underutilized outdoor pools
The next step will be to develop an implementation and financial plan, to be submitted to City Council in 2018. We will continue to provide updates on the progress of the plan, and on opportunities for participation.
