​Keeping Regent P​ark clean​

We are working to keep noise and dust levels low during construction. To keep the community clean, we will be cleaning in and around construction sites daily, and street sweeping and flushing (with water) as required. We have a contract with Building Up, a non-profit social enterprise, to clean public areas throughout the community every weekday.

  • Dreamer's Way, between Gerrard Street East and Oak Street
  • Sumach Street, between Oak Street and Dundas Street East
