Dufferin Park Redevelopment

The next phase of construction is set to begin on the Dufferin Park Redevelopment at 164 St. Paul Avenue. The former Dufferin Clubhouse was demolished in February 2023 as a first step in implementing the new Dufferin Park Plan, which is intended to make the park more inclusive and appeal to a wider range of residents’ interests and activities. During the construction period, the public is reminded to stay outside the fenced areas for their safety.


  • New building construction is to take place throughout the spring and summer of 2023.
  • Tennis courts, pickleball courts and site amenities will be under construction late in the spring and throughout the summer of 2023.
  • Parking lot and pathway completion is expected in the early fall of 2023.
  • Landscape work is to be underway in the fall of 2023 with finishing touches in the spring of 2024.

New and improved amenities 

Residents can look forward to new and improved Dufferin Park amenities that will include:

  • Six new tennis courts with lighting and access to shade structures
  • Six new pickleball courts with lighting and access to shade structures
  • An asphalt multi-use area including a basketball court
  • Play area and shade structure
  • A modern new central public building with a small indoor meeting space, an outdoor patio area, storage and washrooms
  • New parking lot with accessible spaces and drop-off area
  • Accessible pathways
  • Enhanced landscaping

The new one thousand square foot Dufferin Park public building will be centrally located within the park, and will feature a covered entryway, indoor meeting space, an outdoor patio space for activities and events, a new storage room and accessible and universal public washrooms. The modern new public building will be available to rent for community/group events.

The design funding was approved for lawn bowling to be relocated to the Walter Gretzky Municipal Golf Course and Learning Centre at 320 Balmoral Avenue, now featuring a recently built new clubhouse including a full-size banquet room, commercial kitchen, members lounge, and wrap around outdoor patio overlooking the picturesque course.
