Riverdale Park East: North-East Quadrant Revitalization

This significant project includes a new skating rink and ice trail, winter lounge, Zamboni station, new playground, new barrier-free accessible ramp, access pathways, and site furniture and lighting improvements.

Project Timeline:

2015: Park concept design is complete. Construction drawings and tendering of the project is complete.
Early summer 2016: Construction begins (see below for closures and access impacts)
Spring/ Early summer 2017: Anticipated completion (weather permitting)

Construction Impacts:

While we make improvements to the park, there may be some inconvenience to users accessing the pool, tennis courts, and dogs off-leash area (DOLA) during the 2016 operating season.

Temporary access will be provided to the park as follows:

  •       Pool and DOLA: from Montcrest Boulevard through the park driveway
  •      Tennis Courts: from the Tennis Crescent staircase (located at the north-east corner of the tennis courts)

IMPORTANT: Full closure of the playground and outdoor rink will begin early summer 2016 and will last for the entire duration of the project construction.
