Naming the Dufferin-Peel Park

As part of the community benefits secured from the 11 Peel development, a new public park will be constructed at the southeast corner of Dufferin St and Peel Ave. The new park will include a square with water jets, seating, grass areas and a connection to the future extension of the West Toronto Railpath.

Residents have the opportunity to cast their ballots and vote for their preferred name of the new park to be built at Peel and Dufferin. Voting is open for two weeks from November 4, 2016 to November 18, 2016!

The choices for the park name are:

  • Pessoa Park ("pessoa" is the word for 'person' in Portuguese, and is intended to highlight the park's role as a community gathering place)


  • Peel Park

You can cast your vote by clicking here or on the link below.
