Organizer Parc Downsview Park

Organizer of Downsview Park Nature Connection: Forest Invasion

DOWNSVIEW PARK IS A DYNAMIC URBAN PARK THAT COMBINES ACTIVE AND PASSIVE ELEMENTS, REFLECTING THE DIVERSE NATURE OF THE SURROUNDING DOWNSVIEW COMMUNITY.

Visitors from all over the Greater Toronto Area are attracted to the Park’s various on-site uses, ranging from education, sports, nature, recreation and cultural events. Often compared to the great parks of the world, Downsview has not had the same hundreds of years to cultivate. Originating from humble beginnings, borne of a community rich with heritage and proud of its storied military history, Downsview Park today is still in its infancy.

As with many other dynamic parks around the world, Downsview will never be finished or stop growing. Over the course of decades and beyond, Downsview Park will continue to constantly develop, change and mature to reflect the surrounding community with each generation. Downsview Park aspires to be the cornerstone of its community as it continues to transform and blossom. Watch us grow with you!

LE PARC DOWNSVIEW EST UN PARC URBAIN DYNAMIQUE QUI INCLUT DES ÉLÉMENTS ACTIFS ET PASSIFS, QUI REFLÈTE LA NATURE DIVERSE DE LA COLLECTIVITÉ VOISINE DE DOWNSVIEW.


Les possibilités très variées qu’offre le Parc Downsview attirent des gens de toute la région métropolitaine de Toronto. Ces possibilités englobent l’éducation, les sports, la nature, les loisirs et les événements culturels. Souvent comparé aux grands parcs du monde, Downsview n’a pas bénéficié de centaines d’années pour s’établir. D’origine humble, le parc a été créé dans une collectivité dotée d’un riche patrimoine et fière d’une histoire militaire remarquable. Aujourd’hui, Downsview en est encore à ses débuts.

Comme de nombreux autres parcs dynamiques du monde entier, Downsview ne sera jamais achevé et ne cessera jamais de croître. Durant les prochaines décennies et au-delà, le Parc Downsview continuera constamment de se développer, de changer et d’arriver à maturité, afin de refléter chaque génération de la collectivité environnante. Le Parc Downsview souhaite devenir la pierre angulaire de la collectivité, à mesure qu’il continuera de se transformer et de s’épanouir. Nous allons grandir avec vous!lossom. Watch us grow with you!
