Corktown Off-Leash Area Update

Many residents have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the new off-leash area (OLA) in Corktown southwest of Underpass Park. While originally planned to open in two phases, City staff have determined that the most efficient method is to do the park in a single phase, which will allow it to open in 2026 rather than 2028 as originally planned

Many residents have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the new off-leash area (OLA) in Corktown southwest of Underpass Park. While originally planned to open in two phases, City staff have determined that the most efficient method is to do the park in a single phase, which will allow it to open in 2026 rather than 2028 as originally planned. 

The new DOLA will be located in Underpass Park West, on the north side of Eastern Avenue and the Rolling Mills Road intersection. It will be complete with artificial turf, a fence and gates, and a water filling station. 

Transportation Services and Engineering Construction Services will soon begin rehabilitation work on the Eastern/Adelaide overpass. Because the new DOLA will be located underneath the bridge, Parks Forestry and Recreation has been working with Transportation Services and Engineering Services and have  determined the best path forward would be to construct of the OLA following the rehabilitation work. The team currently plans to start construction in 2025 and finish the project by spring 2026, dependent on the completion of the rehabilitation project in summer 2025.

Pride Toronto 2024 Welcome and Events

On May 31, I raised the flag outside City Hall to mark the beginning of Pride Month. This is the time to celebrate Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer love, culture, and history. Pride Month is also a time of reflection, acknowledging the challenges that our communities face to be proud and to be true to their identity.
