Moss Park Rejuvenation and Natural Playground Build

Thanks to Coca-Cola Canada, Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds, Parks Canada, and ParticipACTION, Moss Park residents will soon have new outdoor green spaces where children can play, and where neighbours can sit and enjoy their natural surroundings.

Toronto Community Housing depends on great partnerships like this to make important contributions to our communities. These partnerships are valuable because they support our efforts to improve the quality of housing and our communities for tenants.

The build will rejuvenate the outdoor space surrounding the three high-rise buildings that make up Moss Park (275, 285, and 295 Shuter Street). The transformation includes a new natural playground, soccer field, community vegetable garden, parkettes, built-in chess boards, amphitheatre, and fully accessible and well-lit pathways. The green space will feature natural materials like native species plants, cedar logs and granite from the Canadian Shield, based on the natural elements found in Georgian Bay Islands National Park, which is the inspiration for the playground’s design.
