William Baker Neighbourhood Woodlot Access Update
Daytime access to the woodlot is now ready for all to enjoy! All of the interim landscaping which includes paths, benches and garbage receptacles are now in place, with lighting soon to be operational. To help make the site accessible to the public, an approximately 8 foot (2.5 metres) concrete sound barrier needed to be removed, as well as derelict homes, opening up the woodlot to Keele Street and the public realm.
This new community amenity is providing a new pedestrian access to Downsview Park as well as being perfect for having a leisurely stroll, birding and observing wildlife and nature in the southern portion of the William Baker neighbourhood. This area will eventually be a park area once the neighbourhood is developed.
