Pump House Park

The Rugby field is going to be rebuilt in the North East corner of the park, and a new parking lot will also be built with access off of Coxwell between the rugby field and the skate park. The former rugby field and north parking lot will be used as construction staging for work at the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant.

Environmental Impact:

  • Trees in construction areas will need to be removed and replaced; however, additional trees will be planted.
  • Current mound in the park will be used to level the new rugby field area.


  • The new rugby field and parking lot, are to be completed Fall 2017 to Spring 2018 before the start of rugby season
  • Construction staging at former rugby field and parking lot will commence once new field and parking lot are built.
    *Project notices will be sent out closer to starting dates*

The City of Toronto is proposing bike lanes on Woodbine Avenue (between O’Connor Drive and Queen Street East). We are also proposing connecting contra-flow bike lanes on Corley Avenue (between Woodbine Avenue and Brookside Drive) and Norway Avenue (between Woodbine Avenue and Elmer Avenue).

Project Update:

Over the winter months, Transportation Services staff have been working on the details for installation of cycling facilities along Woodbine Avenue from O’Connor Drive to Queen Street East.

The installation of cycle tracks and bicycle lanes on Woodbine Avenue is expected to take place in July 2017.  After the installation on Woodbine Avenue, a contra-flow bike lane will be installed on Corley Avenue and sharrows will be installed on Norway Avenue. The exact schedule has not been determined but is expected to take approximately two weeks to be completed.

Watermain Replacement on Coxwell Avenue from Queen St. E. to Gerrard St. E.

Expected Start Date:  April 2016

Expected End Date:  September 2016

The City of Toronto is planning to replace the watermain and the City-owned portion of substandard water services on Coxwell Avenue from Queen Street East to Gerrard Street in the Summer.

The water service is the underground pipe that brings water to your water meter and is owned by you and by the City. The part you own is from your house to the end of your property, the part the City owns is from the end of your property to the watermain.

This project is part of the Council-approved 2016 Capital Works Program to renew our ageing infrastructure, improve water distribution and reduce the risk watermain breaks.
