Release of Citizen-Led Neighbourhood Plan in Thorncliffe Park & Flemingdon Park

May 31, 2016

The Active Neighbourhoods Project team at the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) is pleased to announce the release of a citizen-led Neighbourhood Plan that has a bold new vision for public spaces and streets in Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park. Built from the ideas and feedback of residents in these two neighbourhoods, and with support from professional planners, architects and community stakeholders, the plan highlights three key impact areas for improving these two communities:

  1. Improve access to the Don Valley Ravine and other green spaces
  2. Transform Overlea Blvd. into a Complete Street
  3. Animate spaces in between neighbourhood towers.

On Saturday June 4, 2016 from 1-4 p.m., we will be participating in an event that celebrates ideas from the Plan as part of the 100 in 1 Day Festival at two locations in Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park.

This event will bring together residents from these two neighbourhoods for mural painting at 71&75 Thorncliffe Park Drive, and path repair at 701 Don Mills Road. Culminating in a picnic in between the two locations in the Don Valley will link each community to the other through the ravine trail system.
