In progress City project

Redeveloping Paul Coffey Park

Redeveloping this Malton community park to improve its design quality, social and environment attributes.

We want to make Paul Coffey Park a popular Malton destination, a community treasure as well as a place where people want to be.

Developing this Master Plan will allow us to:

  • continue to provide recreational opportunities
  • restore some existing park features
  • improve safety
  • enhance the landscape


People in a boardroom

A session was held on May 29, 2017, that included representatives from the following community groups in Malton:

  • sports field users
  • arts and cultural groups
  • health and social services
  • schools

Public information sessions were held on June 6, 2017 and November 6, 2017. Copies of presentation materials are available in the ‘Documents’ section below.

These meetings generated lots of learning, sharing and imagining of what Paul Coffey Park can become.

Paul Coffey Park is a multi-faceted community park in Malton. Heavily used by residents, sports groups and cultural groups, the park spans approximately 45.5 ha (112.4 ac).

Acquired in 1965 by the City, the park has undergone considerable challenges including substantial loss of its tree canopy due to insect infestation.

Recognized as a valued asset to the Malton Community, redevelopment of the park will enhance the design quality, social and environmental attributes to meet current and future user needs.

The redevelopment of Paul Coffey Park was a recommendation from the Future Directions Parks & Forestry Master Plan.
