Planning for Toronto’s largest skatepark began in 2004/2005. After many years of delay due to poor soil conditions, the first phase opened to a much anticipated crowd in 2009. It was one of the first real street style skateparks developed in Canada and it features replicas of real urban terrain that can be found in the marble plazas of Toronto’s financial district. Phase 2 was built in 2011 and features a kidney shaped pool with an 11 foot deep end and real pool coping. The TSC advocated succesfully for many years for the installation of lighting to extend the use of this busy facility. The lights were finally powered up just in time for summer 2020.
