Help us plan this new neighbourhood park in Sunnyside Heights!
City parks are open for casual use. To minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission, stay home when sick, stay 2 metres apart, do not gather in groups, and wear a mask in crowded spaces. Spectators for outdoor sports are not permitted as per new public health orders.
Edgewood Park is under construction and closed to the public. Construction of some areas of the park will be completed and open to public in late 2020.
Dawn until Dusk
Acquired in 1951, this 3.9 hectare (9.6 acres) park served as the location for the Sunnyside Saddle Club for many decades. It is now in the middle of a rapidly growing neighbourhood and will be transformed into the next great neighbourhood park.
The park is being designed through a community consultation process including two open houses (November 28, 2017 and May 8, 2018) and a community site meeting on February 3, 2020.
After preliminary project work, collecting feedback from residents, revising the concept plan and finalizing detail design plans, the park is now under construction. Some areas of the park are scheduled to open in late 2020.
This phase involved project scoping, schedule development, and project budgeting.
Fall 2017 – Spring 2020
This phase involved site surveying, environmental assessments, other analysis, preliminary design work and site preparation.
Nov 2017 – Feb 2020
This phase included: public Open House #1 (Nov 28 2017), public Open House #2 (May 8, 2018), a Community Site Meeting (Feb 3, 2020), feedback and surveys on preliminary design work for the Park.
Fall 2019 – Spring 2020
This phase involves the refinement of the park concept design, detailed design, permitting and approvals. Following a hazard tree assessment and arboricultural review, 20 trees were identified to pose a significant public safety concern or will be negatively impacted by necessary grading while constructing the park. 93 new trees are planned to be planted in the park. Construction of some areas of the park will be completed and open to public in late 2020.
Construction of Edgewood Park began in May 2020, with some areas of the park scheduled to open in late 2020.
