Kidstown Water Park

Three phases of public engagement included Design Jams with kids and community meetings to redesign and renew this well-loved waterpark.

Located in Scarborough’s L’Amoreaux neighbourhood, Kidstown is Toronto’s most popular aquatic facility for children and families. The park is due for a complete overhaul and children and adults are offering their feedback over the course of three phases of public engagement led by the Dept of Words & Deeds. The waterpark facilities, including the parking, change room and picnic areas, are all being redesigned and renewed.
