Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation Projects

Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation is working on three different initiatives to improve the City's parks and recreation facilities/services for the residents. See below for further information on the projects.

"Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan (FMP)

The FMP will prioritize investment in parks and recreation facilities over 20 years. It will guide the creation of new facilities, the renewal of existing facilities, and recommend strategies to optimize facility use to meet local and city-wide needs. Learn more about the FMP and its consultation process: www.toronto.ca/parks/facilitiesplan  

City of Toronto Sport Plan

The Sport Plan will guide the planning and delivery of City sport programs and services. Developed with the Toronto Sports Council, this five-year plan aims to advance sport by increasing awareness of and participation in sport programs, and by strengthening Toronto's network of community sport organizations.

Parks and Recreation Permit Process Review 

The Permitting Process Review is part of our commitment to improving the systems and business processes that are at the center of our work. The review will identify opportunities to improve the customer experience and reduce the amount of time required to obtain a permit.
