Memorial ParkReturn To Projects
The City has selected the property known as Memorial Park, currently owned by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), for the installation of critical storm water infrastructure, known as the Midtown Toronto Storm Sewer Relief Project to increase the capacity of the overloaded storm sewer system and protect buildings from potential flooding and sewer backup.
The storm sewer project is being led by Toronto Water and the Basement Flood Protection Program team of Engineering & Construction Services. This infrastructure project is currently proceeding through detailed design.
On March 8, 2021, CreateTO’s Board provided direction to staff to negotiate a term sheet between the City of Toronto and the TDSB for the City’s acquisition of Memorial Park and evaluate future options to include city-building opportunities. The ability to include City uses in conjunction with the redevelopment of Memorial Park would provide an opportunity to leverage Toronto Water’s work to provide other strategic city-building opportunities.
