City of Vaughan recently celebrated the grand opening of the first phase of Edgeley Park with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, June 12.

Located at 300 Maplecrete Road, this is the first public park to open in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre. DTAH led the architecture and landscape architecture for the park, which features a new pavilion and green roof, accessible washrooms, a community use room; a skating loop; a splash pad; a unique play area designed by Earthscape; and an open lawn.

The first phase of Edgeley Park is an active play area for the larger Edgeley Pond and Park, an important open space for the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, which is intended to function as a naturalized online stormwater management facility for the growing neighbourhood. DTAH led the vision and design for the site, which will integrate passive recreation opportunities while celebrating the important role that Black Creek plays in the larger watershed.
