Wallace Emerson Community Centre and Park

As part of the Reimagine Galleria project, Wallace Emerson Park will flourish and undergo an expansion from 6.58 acres to 7.81 acres. A larger, vibrant park will offer greater opportunities to create a more usable, functional and inviting public space where families can gather for fun and play.

The Reimagine Galleria project also includes the renewal and revitalization of the Wallace Emerson Community Centre. A new Community Centre, double the size of the existing centre, will be built at the Dupont entrance of the site. The new 75,000 sq. ft. centre will boast a child care facility and will feature a colourful calendar of community events.

Two visioning Open Houses were held on April 26, 2018 and May 22, 2018 to gather the community’s feedback, ideas and aspirations. The presentation and panels from these Open Houses can be downloaded here. The design team is currently collecting the community’s feedback and preparing a concept for the new Community Centre and Park. The next Public Open House will be held on Wednesday, July 18 at the Galleria Mall (1245 Dupont Street). We hope you can come and share your feedback at this time! If you have any other ideas before then, please do not hesitate to contact the Reimagine Galleria project team below.
