The City of Toronto and Councillor Neethan Shan, Ward 42, will host a meeting to discuss the progress of the Beare Hill Park Detailed Design Project. Please join us:
Date: Tuesday, June 27, 2017
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Malvern Community Recreation Centre, Community Room, 30 Sewells Road
Where is the Beare Hill Park site?
The Beare Hill Park site is located in Scarborough (see map attached), south of Beare Road. This site is bounded by Finch Avenue East to the north, the Toronto/Pickering town line to the east, a CN Rail corridor to the west and a hydro corridor to the south. The proposed Beare Hill Park site is adjacent to the Rouge National Urban Park and the Toronto Zoo.
What’s this meeting about?
You are invited to attend the meeting to:
Review the changes proposed,
Provide comments and input, and
Discuss next steps.
The community was previously engaged to participate in three public meetings that led to the development of the Beare Road (now Hill) Park Master Plan in 2013. This detailed design project involves the preparation of detailed studies and designs that will be used to tender the construction of the park. The park design reflects the Master Plan, however, there have been some minor changes that the City is looking for input on.
