The Winston Churchill Park will reopen by the end of next year. The City is holding a Drop-In Event on Tuesday Dec 11th between 6:30pm and 8:30 pm at Timothy Eaton Church to show us the plans.
The Dog Off Leash Area (DOLA) will be moved down the hill as the Water department has determined that dog pee may leak into the new reservoir. Unfortunately, the proposed area is smaller than the previous DOLA which was already overcrowded on busy summer days. The location of the new DOLA will not impact the protected environment of the ravine.
They are considering adding 2 or 3 unlighted tennis courts to the 10 that were previously there. They also say there will be no more changes for 75 years!
The Winston Churchill Park is a great benefit to our neighbourhood and I’m sure the tennis club, jogging/running paths, playground and dog park make a difference not only to us but to others who will move into our neighbourhood over the next 75 years.
Please drop by the open house at Timothy Eaton and offer your input on their plans. The website for the park renovation is www.toronto.ca/stclairreservoir
