This website has been created by the Grange Park Advisory Committee (GPAC) to share information about Grange Park and its revitalization project.
Grange Park is a beautiful and historic green space located between Beverley and McCaul Streets, south of Dundas. Like many inner city parks, it is in need of special care to return it to its natural beauty. The local community has taken the lead to work with the Art Gallery of Ontario, the City of Toronto and other neighbouring organizations to restore and revitalize Grange Park.
The Grange Park revitalization project is generously supported by The W. Garfield Weston Foundation and the City of Toronto.
We are very pleased to report that the project is now 80% complete. Work will continue, weather permitting, until the end of January. The site will then be closed during February and March. Work will resume in April (again, weather permitting!) to complete the play area, water features, great lawn and dog off-leash area, finish construction of the washrooms and maintenance building and take care of final plantings and placement of furniture.
The new east-west path is now open and looking fabulous! The new trees, sod and plantings make quite a difference to the park.
The project is now in its final phase. The area that is currently open to the public will remain the same until the project is completed next spring. At the south-west side of the park, you can see the location for the new fenced-in off-leash area for dogs, covered in Fibar engineered wood fibre. This area will remain open to the public until the project is complete. When the rest of the park opens to the public, this area will be fenced in for the dogs’ off-leash area.
