High Park Zoo Master Plan

Presentation & Round Table Discussion

Thursday, October 15th, 2015
7:00 to 8:30 PM

High Park Forest School,
Colborne Lodge Drive, Toronto, ON

One of North America’s oldest zoos, High Park Zoo, is planning a face lift and we want you to be a part of it.

For over 120 years, the free admission High Park Zoo has been one of the jewels of Toronto. As part of the development of a new Master Plan for High Park Zoo, Friends of High Park Zoo, in collaboration with the City of Toronto, invite
members of the public to share their ideas and visions for High Park Zoo.

The public meeting will focus on gathering input from the public on immediate and long-term goals for the Zoo.

We look forward to hearing your input on improving the visitor experience, enhancing educational opportunities, increasing accessibility and any suggestions for specific projects that would make the zoo a better place for people and its animal residents.

Everyone is welcome to attend especially children and youth.

2015 Metrolinx Accessibility Public Meetings

Posted on October 6, 2015


Metrolinx is inviting you to participate in our 2015 Accessibility Public Meetings that will take place across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.  We want to hear from you about the accessibility of GO Transit, PRESTO, UP Express, and our upcoming Rapid Transit services and projects.


Metrolinx values the input we receive through a variety of channels from community members, partners and stakeholders to help identify improvements to the accessibility of our services.


At each in-person meeting, participants will have an opportunity to:


  • learn about past, current and future accessibility activities at Metrolinx and its operating divisions and business units;


  • discuss and provide input to our accessibility initiatives through round table sessions; and


  • interact directly with Metrolinx staff involved with accessibility projects.


American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, real-time captioning and attendant services will be provided at the in-person meetings.  Alternative formats and other accommodations will be made available upon request.


New this year is a teleconference, which will provide an opportunity for some people who might not be able to make it to an in-person meeting to share their ideas and speak with Metrolinx staff.  For the teleconference, participants are asked to submit questions and comments in advance, and then staff will respond to those during the call.


The meetings will take place at the following locations/dates:


Toronto                 Tuesday, October 20, 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
