Background
The development of Danville Park implements a number of recommendations made in the 2014 Parks & Forestry Future Directions Master Plan and meets the City’s goals of providing parkland and recreational facilities to its residents. Located northwest of the Highway 401 and Highway 410 interchange on Danville Road in Ward 5, the 27-hectare (67-acre) park provides a number of recreational activities that complement the area’s unique topography. As a contribution to the development of the park and as a commitment to connecting with residents through community-building initiatives, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) donated $300,000 to the revitalization of the space. The airport also worked with the City to involve community members in the naming and design of the park. The final look of the park and name, Final Approach Danville Terminal is a reflection of the community and its history; it features a sleek overhead airplane, a painted runway, informational plaques and pinnacle posts denoting runway lighting.
