Pessoa Park voted as the new name of Ward 18's newest park!

I am pleased to share with you that the online survey to name Ward 18's newest park to be constructed at Peel Ave and Dufferin St has completed. Thank you to the hundreds who took part and cast ballots to name this great new community space. The preferred name voted for by residents was Pessoa Park! 

I hope you can join me in Summer 2017 as we break ground and begin construction of Pessoa Park! I will keep you updated as we approach the official naming and groundbreaking ceremony.

The new park space was secured as part of the community benefits agreement from the 11 Peel development. The new park will include a square with water jets, seating, grass areas and a connection to the future extension of the West Toronto Railpath.
