As many of you know, the Dundas-St Clarens Parkette is a small but important greenspace in our community. However, the park is underutilized and in need of improvement to better serve our community - now and into the future. I have been able to secure Section 42 funds from a nearby development to make improvements to the Dundas-St Clarens Parkette.
Earlier this year, I hosted a community meeting to hear from residents on ways they would like to enjoy the park and what they would like to see incorporated into this public space. Many of you attended and provided important input on how we could improve the park.
In September, I followed up with the Dundas West BIA and invited residents to offer their feedback on the concept designs staff developed based on the feedback collected during the first public meeting and during the Dundas West Festival.
I am excited to share with you the following concept design that showcases the Dundas/St. Clarens Parkette as a place to gather with your friends and neighbours, to enjoy the community gardens, play a game of chess or attend a community market/performance.
I look forward to your feedback on this new park concept as we work to prepare a final concept for the park and begin construction in the summer of 2017.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss this project further, you can contact me at 416-392-7012 or via email at [email protected]
