The newest downtown green space is set to officially open this weekend.
The Grange Park has been in revitalization stages since 2009. Spearheaded by Grange Park Advisory Committee (GPAC), the downtown park is set to show off its greenery on Saturday, July 8.
Located by the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and OCAD, the Grange Park will now have more trees, a larger playground, new dog off-leash area, new seatings and gathering spaces, as well as new washrooms. Not to mention a famous old statue with a new spot in the city.
This weekend’s ribbon cutting ceremony starts at 1:30 pm, and there will be refreshments, performances, art-making, face painting, dog portraits, and more.
Where: Grange Park (south of Dundas between Beverley and McCaul)
When: July 8 at 12 to 4 pm
