Wychwood Barns Park

Address: 76 WYCHWOOD AVE Map It

This location is the park area that surrounds the former Toronto Transit Commission Barns on three sides. Park features include a children's playground, an open sports field with a natural ice rink in winter, a fenced in dog off-leash area, a beach volleyball court and picnic tables. In addition, approximately 150 trees, 1,500 shrubs and 900 perennials and grasses have been planted. There are circulation paths in the park aligned with the surrounding streets, such as Helena Avenue between Wychwood Avenue and Christie Street on the east-west axis and Slade Avenue on the north-south axis, as well as meandering paths, some of which follow the former streetcar tracks. The layout is intended to complement and create as few barriers as possible, both physical and conceptual, between the park and the buildings and between indoor and outdoor environments.
