Toronto park refurbished and renamed for firefighter who died in Sunrise Propane explosion


The park at 3 Hanover Rd., just north of Dufferin and Wilson, has been named in honour of firefighter Robert Leek who died of a heart attack during the Sunrise Propane explosion in 2008.

The park features a new junior playground, trees, benches, a walkway and a pergola. Parminder Singh Saini, who also died during the Aug. 10 explosion, was also honoured with a plaque at the ceremony yesterday.

Leek was a 25-year veteran with the Toronto Fire Services and held the title of District Chief of Emergency Planning.
