Working with Moss Park Community on New Vision for Park

The ‘More Moss Park’ consultation process encourages all local residents and people who use Moss Park to share ideas and experiences to shape a collective vision for recreational facilities and public space. The consultation will help ensure current uses, programs and services are preserved and at the same time develop shared priorities for programs, expanded facilities, partnerships and public spaces that respond to emerging neighbourhood and community needs.

SvN is on a cross-disciplinary team, led by MJMA, that includes urban design and landscape architecture firm West 8, the collective art practice Public Studio, and Toronto architecture firm LGA Architectural Partners.

“The proposed redevelopment has three goals: serve local communities; enhance existing programs, services and public spaces; and create a welcoming, accessible space for everyone who uses Moss Park,” says Maura Lawless, executive director The 519. From May to September, there will be a series of community meetings, focus groups, surveys, site tours and walkabouts to learn from residents and shape plans for site design and community program priorities.
