Pet Friendly Design Guidelines

Pet Friendly Design Guidelines

The City of Toronto holds public consultations as one way to engage residents in the life of their city. We invite you to get involved.

Pet Friendly Design Guidelines

The City of Toronto Planning Department, in collaboration with consultants from DIALOG, is holding a Stakeholder Interview meeting where you can meet with the Project Team in an informal interview of 45 min to 1 hour to share your insights about how to design a Pet-friendly environment for Toronto’s multi-unit, high-density communities.

Details are as follows:

Date: May 10, 2018
Time: Your desired 1hr time slot between 9am to 5pm
Place: St. Lawerence Community Recreation Centre
(230 The Esplanade, Adult Lounge, 2nd Floor)

The City of Toronto has initiated a project to create a set of Pet Friendly Design Guidelines for Toronto’s multi-unit, high-density communities. Toronto communities are becoming increasingly compact, and include a large and growing pet population. In these areas, existing facilities may be at or nearing capacity, and additional space, facilities, and amenities are increasingly required to support the growing pet population and their owners, as well as to provide open space and facilities for everyone to enjoy.

The purpose of this study is to develop a series of guidelines to inform the design and planning of pet amenities in multi-unit, high-density communities. The study will focus on three scales – the neighbourhood, the building, and unit – covering the private to the public realm, with recommendations and strategies tailored to address issues associated with each.

As a key stakeholder, we would like to invite you to contribute your ideas and aspirations for pets, pet owners, and other residents, and your perspective on how the Guidelines can inform planning and development to improve residents’ access to facilities and amenities, and quality of life. If you have supportive information or materials that the Project Team can take away and review, it would be most helpful to bring them along. Interviews may be conducted individually, or in small groups where backgrounds and/or experience align.

We hope that you are able to attend. Please RSVP with your availability by April 30, 2018 at this link: https://petfriendlyguidelines.eventbrite.ca Please choose in the invite your preferred time slot and a second option, we will try our best to accommodate your time. You will be informed of your appointed time slot by Friday May 4th.

To speak to the Project Lead directly, please contact Ran Chen, at 416-392-1137 rchen2@toronto.ca

We look forward to meeting you!

The Ontario Science Centre to Build Indoor Playspace at Canoe Landing CRC

The Ontario Science Centre to Build Indoor Playspace at Canoe Landing Park Community Recreation Centre

The Ontario Science Centre and the City of Toronto have finalized an agreement with the Ontario Science Centre to design and build the indoor playscape at the Canoe Landing Community Recreation Centre (Scheduled to be completed and opened in Fall 2019).

The CityPlace Residents Association (CPRA) is pleased that this new City of Toronto partnership with the Ontario Science Centre will result in the design and fabrication of one of the best indoor play facilities for children in their early years at the new Canoe Landing Community Recreation Centre. This is good news for the CityPlace community and a benefit to making this a family friendly downtown neighbourhood!

The indoor playspace will be designed and built by the Ontario Science Centre.

On May 1, the CPRA attended a design charrette as part of a collaborative process in which community partners and stakeholders worked together in shaping the vision for the 3000 Sq Ft Indoor Playspace for the Canoe Landing Community Recreation Centre (Block 31).

At the Ontario Science Centre, we learned about the power of play, functionality of design as a catalyst for play, and worked collaboratively with many stakeholders including architects, planners, construction company officials, educators, parents and community leaders in helping to envision a futuristic concept for the indoor playscape at the new Canoe Landing Community Recreation Centre.
