As part of the development at 25 Wellesley Street West and the community benefits agreement, Councillor Wong-Tam has secured a new Dog Off-Leash Area (OLA) adjacent to Dr. Lillian McGregor Park.
Most of the land is under private ownership and the above-ground area will be conveyed to the City as public parkland following the completion of the development and the construction of the park. The park will be constructed over separate parking garages that will remain privately owned by different adjacent owners. This stratified land ownership and construction was a key constraint in the design of the park.
The Off-Leash Area will be fully fenced with an entrance from the South and from the North. The OLA will have artificial turf surfacing, trees, and natural seating elements.
Now, we need a name and are looking to engage the community in that process.
