About Downsview Park
Formerly a military base (CFB Toronto), Parc Downsview Park Inc. (PDP)
was established by the Government of Canada, stipulating that the land
be developed as "a unique urban recreational greenspace for the
enjoyment of future generations." Downsview Park is self-financing,
independent of government funding and is being designed to support
environmental, social and economic sustainability. Of its 572 acres, a
substantial majority are committed to public open space and
recreational use. Downsview Park engages the public through its
year-round seasonal, cultural and special events, and educational and
recreational programs. It is also home to the Downsview Park Sports
Centre. These features promote and broaden awareness of the significant
historical, environmental and cultural characteristics that make
Downsview Park unique. Over 1.5 million visits annually continue to
establish Downsview Park as a unique park for all people and a modern park for all seasons.
