A new park bridge will directly connect pedestrians and cyclists to neighbour Downsview Park – one of Canada’s largest urban parks.
Parks And Open Space
6+ acres of parkland, plus the adjacent Downsview Park, create a green oasis in the city, brought to life by arts and culture and meaningful Indigenous place-keeping throughout the district.

Acres of open space provide the landscape to foster meaningful connections with people, pets, wildlife and nature.
A low-carbon design, featuring blue-green infrastructure, leading-edge stormwater management, adaptive re-use of existing structures, abundant green space and respects for existing eco-systems, all work together to form a healthy live-work environment.
