Status on the Charles G. Williams Park Improvements

Posted on February 13, 2020

The City of Toronto is undertaking work to improve Charles G Williams Park. This work will include installing a new playground and splash pad.

In December, we held a meeting to collect community feedback and suggestions for the park redesign. Parks staff and the consultant shared different options for the new playground and splash pad equipment, and gathered important feedback from the community on design preferences and community needs.

Based on the feedback that was gathered, the final design plan was developed (see below). Staff will now begin the process of procuring a contractor for the project.
