Regent Park Athletic Grounds

The Regent Park Athletic Grounds, a state-of-the-art sports facility, will be constructed in Phase 3 of the Regent Park Revitalization. It will include an improved ice rink, a basketball court, and a new field that will be able to be used as both a soccer pitch and cricket field.
There is also an opportunity to provide additional spaces, such as a children’s play area, water play area and community gardens. The final design will be developed through consultations with the surrounding community.

 
The MLSE Foundation is the project’s leading donor and will fund most of the capital costs to construct the park. Construction is expected to begin in late 2014 and the Athletic Grounds are anticipated to be finished in early 2015.

 
Toronto Community Housing is working closely with their partners Daniels and the City of Toronto on this project. When finished, the Regent Park Athletic Grounds will ultimately be run as a City park.

 
A landscape architectural firm, EDA Collaborative, has been retained to lead the design of the park and community consultations. Toronto Community Housing has selected 12 Regent Park youth to conduct the community consultations and advise on programming.

 
Three major consultation meetings will be scheduled to design the park: February 26, March 27 and a final date in late April. Those interested in attending a meeting can get more information by calling 416-981-4311.
