mystery park

Toronto getting a new park but its location is a mystery

Toronto's condo boom has transformed King West into a thriving neighbourhood filled with people. That's why the city thinks the concrete-filled area needs more green space. And as CBC News reports, city staff are looking to create a new park somewhere between the borders of Bathurst, University, Front and Queen.

According to CBC, staff from the parks, forestry and recreation department along with the planning and real estate department are trying to secure an undisclosed piece of land for the project. Although they haven't approached the owner about selling just yet.

As Councillor Joe Cressy tells CBC, it appears that the park will be funded via Section 37 of the province's Planning Act. Basically, condo developers can do things such as build taller towers if they set aside cash to pay for entities such as public parks or artwork.
