The large Green P parking lot that sits across from the Wellesley subway station has been promised, in Toronto's Official City Plan, as parkland for many years.
In the recently released, "TOCore Implementation Strategy: Downtown Parks and Public Realm Plan," 15 Wellesley East is listed as one of the “New Parks Secured through Development and Acquisitions.”
According to Tyler Johnson, of Councillor Wong-Tam's office, the final allocation of the parking lot is not yet determined. "Green P is amenable to giving it to the city but it hasn’t been decided if it’s going to be fully parkland or partially parkland and partially affordable housing,” he wrote.
The CWNA will continue to lobby for more parkland for our growing neighbourhood.
