The revitalization and expansion of St. Andrew’s Playground Park at 450 Adelaide St. West is now complete.

DTAH led the design, which included updated amenities and improved programming, and better connectivity to the surrounding area. The expanded park now also includes the former parking lot on the western edge of the site.

The park features mature trees, flower gardens, seating with Catenary lights, picnic tables, a playground, passive areas with lawn, and a dog off-leash area, providing valuable greenspace in Toronto’s Fashion District. The project acts as an important next step in implementing the City of Toronto’s new Downtown Plan and its accompanying Parks and Public Realm Plan.

The historically significant park was the site of the City’s first public playground for children, located next to the site of the former St. Andrew’s Market, a public market hall which was built in 1850 and demolished in 1932.
