Toronto to launch Navy-themed waterpark


Mayor Miller, city reps and Navy officials unveiled plans today to create a Navy-themed waterpark and playground at Sir Casimir Gzowski Park at the west-end of the lake shore near High Park.

The Navy Marine Waterpark will be composed of three main parts: a ship with slides, spray nozzles and a radar dish dumping water to the deck below; a submarine with periscope for children to run through while being sprayed with water; and a nautical feature wall with portholes and spray jets. Yayyy combat!

The playground will feature a helicopter play structure with slides and an inclusive "play apparatus," whatever that means. There will also be an outdoor patio, picnic site, and commemorative walkway paying tribute to Navy history.

A fundraising campaign is being launched to build the park.
