Why are we renewing Collingwood Park?

Collingwood Park is a 1.27 hectare park in the Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood, two blocks north of Kingway. Through the VanPlay(External link) Initiative zone assessment, this area was identified as having low amounts of park space per resident, high demand for affordable and accessible recreation, and fewer street/park trees compared to other areas in the city.

Many of the features in the park are nearing the end of their lifespan and will need to be replaced or improved as part of the renovation, in order to support a vibrant and growing community. Features to be upgraded or replaced include the playground, sports court, wading pool, pathways, field drainage and planting.

Key existing features and infrastructure in the park that are well loved and used by park users:
