Kathryn Johnston Memorial Park

Kathryn Johnston Memorial Park

English Avenue, situated within the Proctor Creek Watershed, has long suffered from damaging combined sewer overflows related to stormwater runoff, economic disinvestment, social and educational challenges, and lack of greenspace.

The green infrastructure that is central to Kathryn Johnston Memorial Park’s design is expected to manage up to 3.5 million gallons of stormwater runoff each year. Other amenities, such as a playground, fitness stations, and a seating terrace, create a safe space for children to play and for the community to enjoy.
