The David A. Balfour Park/Rosehill Reservoir, Midtown Toronto’s much-loved, largest green space has re-oped after a $35 million renovation that took more than four years.

While outside the boundaries of the DPRG, Eglinton Avenue is an important street in midtown Toronto and we wanted to make sure you are aware the City is consulting on its future design:
In 2014 City Council approved the Eglinton Connects Planning Study which articulated the long term vision for Eglinton Avenue following the introduction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. Eglinton Connects envisioned a complete street and was based on three integrated themes of Travelling Eglinton, Greening Eglinton and Building Eglinton.
The eglintonTOday Complete Street project is an interim strategy that will achieve elements of the Eglinton Connects Vision. The project aims to make travel on Eglinton Avenue safer, more inviting, and attractive for everyone.
The City is currently in Phase One which involves improvements along Eglinton Avenue between Keele Street and Mount Pleasant Road. The project will focus on the creation of a complete street by reassigning the existing road space to accommodate general traffic, parking, bikeways, seasonal patio extensions and parkettes, art installations and other streetscape improvements.
To assist with identifying appropriate and effective improvements along Eglinton Avenue, the City has launched a survey. Feedback received from this survey will contribute to the project development as well as enable the City to better plan the next phases of the project.
Have your say!
