In 2016, the TSC was connected with Parks staff working on the design of a new park near Downsview Park. A new community was being developed and would feature a brand new community park called Stanley Greene Park. The new master planned park would include a playground, splashpad, tennis courts, a skatepark and many complimentary amenities. TSC staff shared information about skatepark design and development with staff and in June 2017 were invited to a meeting with the landscape architect and skatepark design consultant. The project was being delivered by the housing developer and would not follow the regular community consultation process typically required on parks projects. The TSC put together a small team to help advise the skatepark design. After the initial meeting, TSC staff continued dialogue with city staff and consultants as the project went through a number of major design adjustments. Construction was completed in spring 2020 and the park is now being enjoyed by the local community as well as skateboarders visiting from other areas. The design of this new skatepark has received a lot of positive feedback.
