The demolition of townhouses and an apartment complex at 230 Sumach Street is in progress to make way for the City of Toronto to construct an indoor aquatics complex in Regent Park, which will be located in a new central park being planned for the community.
Aquatics complex information
The 2,137 sq. m facility, located on the east side of the park, will include an aquatics hall, universal change rooms and meeting space for recreational programming and community use. The aquatics hall will contain a pool which incorporates both fitness and leisure pool designs. The fitness pool will be 25 metres with multiple lanes and a diving area. The leisure pool area will include teaching steps, ramp access, bench seating, and a variety of water features. While the aquatics hall will have an open viewing area, light and views may be
controlled by continuous motorized blinds, allowing visual privacy for female-only swim sessions. The roof of the complex, clearly visible to the residential buildings surrounding the park, will have an intensive green roof.
