Ravina Gardens - Wading Pool Improvements
September 2018 Update
Playground: The new play equipment has been installed and the spinner has been relocated.
Wading Pool /splash pad: Work is anticipated to start on the wading pool upgrades this autumn to be completed into next spring to be ready for next summer.
June 2018 Update
Playground: Work will start in mid-July (or possibly sooner) for the relocation of the spinner followed by the installation of the new senior play structure. During this work a very small portion of the playground will be closed (north west corner). Staff will maintain access as best as possible to the playground and are requesting cooperation from park users to achieve this.
Wading Pool /splash pad: Work is scheduled for after labour day 2018 and the equipment will be ready for the 2019 season.
February 2018 Update
On January 22, 2018 a second public meeting was held. With resident input, the City has selected a design for the wading pool improvements, and added splash pad features and play structures for older children. See features here.
November 2017 Update
The City of Toronto is developing a design proposal for park improvements to the Ravina Gardens Wading Pool. Parks, Forestry, and Recreation staff hosted an Open House information meeting on November 21, 2017 at Annette Library. No specific design plans were shown at the meeting. The preliminary presentation depicted themes and equipment choices to assist the community in providing feedback about their waterplay preferences. There was also discussion on the style of the new piece of playground equipment which is to be added for older children.

Ravina Gardens - 2016 Playground Improvements (now complete)
In 2016, a community consultation meeting was held to get ideas from park users about playground enhancements at Ravina Gardens Park. Residents wanted accessible and updated equipment that allow kids to exercise their bodies and their imaginations. Parents asked that some of the existing well-loved toys remain, and also asked for shade in some play areas like the sandbox.
Parks staff worked with a consultant to take those ideas and worked them into a new plan for the playground. The playground opened in 2017.
