thinc design is currently working with the City of Toronto on Ranleigh Park. The site is the location of an old Church which was removed. It was determined by the community and the City that this would be an opportunity for added green space in the neighbourhood. Adjacent from the school, the park provides an extension of uses and promotes community interaction.
Currently, the proposed is about to be constructed, with completion estimated in summer 2021.
Proposed Park amenities include:
large open lawn area
Seating and gathering areas (dining table, games tables, benches and seatwalls)
Adult Fitness equipment
Demonstration garden beds
Perennial planting beds
Because of the prior use of the site, it requires environmental remediation to remove contaminated soil related to the demolished church that was formerly located on the site. This is currently taking place.
The park is currently planned to be constructed in 2020.
