Gallanough Park Stormwater Management Improvements

Improvements are coming to Gallanough Park!

The City of Vaughan is undertaking important municipal infrastructure improvements to the stormwater management facility at Gallanough Park in Ward 5 (21 Springfield Way). This work is vital to combat the risk of flooding during heavy rainstorms and to ensure this park remains a place families can enjoy for generations to come.


With projects of this scale, there can be unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the City that impact construction. Unfortunately, this is the case with the construction underway in Gallanough Park, which has resulted in delays to the original schedule.


We understand your frustration with the delays and are working as quickly as possible to get a new contractor on board to complete the work. Staff from several City departments have made this a priority. As information on the new timeline becomes available, it will be communicated to residents. Updates will also be posted to this webpage as they are available – you’re encouraged to check back often.
