Ramsden Park Master Plan

The Dept led public consultation and process design on the revitalization of this central Toronto park.


Centrally located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Ramsden Park is one of the city’s oldest and largest parks. The City's revitalization of the 13.7 acre park includes improvements to walkways and trails, the tennis courts and the construction of a new playground and waterplay area. In 2015 and 2016, the community was consulted in an open and accessible three phase process that resulted in an all-encompassing design program devised by PMA Landscape Architects that addresses distinctive heritage concerns, increasing park usage and critical tree and landscaping planning.
