A jewel in Toronto, Downsview Park offers something for everyone.
Downsview has played various pivotal roles throughout Toronto’s history.
Following the closure of the base in 1995, the land was transitioned into two separate but complementary parcels: Downsview Park and Downsview Lands.
Today, the Park represents a majority of the Downsview Lands site. Spanning 291 acres/118 hectares, it is one of the largest urban parks in Toronto and sits atop one of the city's highest points of land.
As owner, Canada Lands is overseeing Downsview Park’s operations and continuous growth. Since the Park’s official opening in 2012, it has become a dynamic urban green space in which active and passive elements are combined for the enjoyment of all visitors. The Park is one of Canada Lands’ greatest examples of the company’s commitment to sustainability. Canada Lands recently constructed a commemorative walking trail and an off-leash dog park, and is now preparing land at the Park’s south end for a new urban farm. Once complete, the 10-acre farm will be one of the largest in the country.
