The clean up of Budapest Park is nearing completion. The play equipment has been sanitized and the boardwalk has been removed and is currently being replaced with new and stronger footings as well as sustainable wood boarding. New sand was replaced Tuesday and Wednesday of this week (to restore the beach) and the playground sand will be restored by end of day today. Due to the large contamination that took place, Toronto Water would like to conduct water quality tests before opening the park to public use. Once Toronto Water has given the all clear, Budapest Park will be opened for the public to use.
I would like to thank all City Staff from Toronto Water and Parks, Forestry and Recreation who have been working hard to ensure that the park is once again safe to use by residents. I would also like to thank residents of Parkdale High Park for your patience during this time. The public’s wellbeing, as always, has been the number one concern and your patience during this time has been greatly appreciated.
