Good news, Toronto - a new 200-hectare public park is set for development in the city's Don Valley area.
The Don River Valley Park will will occupy a relatively empty and undesignated space along the Don River. At 7 kilometres long, it will be the second largest park in the city; just behind Rouge Park and ahead of High Park. The new site will include walking and biking trails, bridges, outdoor exhibits and more.
The park has been in development since 2012, and the city contributed $18 million to the project. By next spring, navigational signs will be set up throughout the park, and eventually it will be designated under Toronto's Parks, Forestry and Recreation sector.
Mayor John Tory will be announcing the private donors involved in the project at Evergreen Brick Works.
