DTAH has been selected to lead a diverse design team in the investigation and implementation of improvements to the northwest corner of Dufferin Grove Park, including architectural and landscape improvements aimed at increasing the accessibility, functionality and capacity of the park’s clubhouse and surrounding landscape to support existing and future community programming. As part of the DTAH team, Lura Consulting will continue to work with the local stakeholders and community to ensure that community engagement is a key component of the project. The City’s Parks, Forestry and Recreation Department is providing overall leadership for the project.

The City of Toronto has identified an opportunity to improve the north-west corner of the park where the clubhouse, ice rink, Zamboni garage, community garden and bake oven are located. The current clubhouse has washrooms, change rooms, and a kitchen, in addition to a Zamboni garage and chilling equipment for the ice rink pads. The use of the clubhouse has expanded, and is now being used for the preparation and serving of food to support community programs and operation of a snack bar at the weekly Farmers Market. The project will look at opportunities to improve the facilities and amenities in the north-west corner of the park. Learn more here
