Summary

The City of Toronto in partnership with The 519 has completed a due diligence exercise with respect to the redevelopment of Moss Park (including the John Innis Community Centre, Moss Park Arena and surrounding sports fields and parklands) as it relates to a sport and recreation facility. The new facility will continue to serve the local community and build capacity in the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) sport and recreation community.
