What Work is Taking Place?

Beginning in September 2016, a portion of the western frontage of Eglinton Park will be used to accommodate construction staging. Through consultations with the public and local elected officials, a reduced portion of Eglinton Park has been approved for temporary use during the construction of the Eglinton Crosstown.  Access to and various uses of the park will be maintained at all times.  The sidewalk in front of the park will become part of the active construction zone. Please take care when travelling near construction.


The area of the park will be occupied starting in September 2016 for the duration of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT construction (upwards of 40 months).

What to Expect:


Several trees at the front of the park will be removed. Other trees will be surrounded with protective fencing. These actions have been permitted by Urban Forestry and comply with current City requirements for compensation and restoration.

Use of the Park

Avenue Station construction staging in this area will include the following uses:

  • Project materials storage
  • Soil stockpile/holding area
  • Equipment
  • Truck waiting area
  • Site crew trailers

Restoration of the Park

Restoration of the park will take place once Avenue Station and the Eglinton Crosstown construction are complete. Working with communities and elected officials, a restoration plan will be developed for Eglinton Park to enhance landscaping and improve lighting and grade, in coordination with the City and existing improvement plans.

Thank you for your patience as we work to build this important project.
