Doctors McLean District Park

Help shape the future of your community park!

Doctors McLean District Park (8100 Islington Ave.) is a cherished Ward 2 park located next to the Humber River. The City of Vaughan is working to connect a key link in the Humber Trail, closing the gap between Clarence Street and both Islington Avenue and Woodbridge Avenue, through the construction of a new bridge and pathways in the park – but there’s more in the works!

The City is taking this opportunity to enhance other elements of the park, including replacing the playground, adding a splashpad, building a new shade structure and adding educational/interpretive signage. Work is anticipated to begin by spring 2025 and be completed by summer 2026. These improvements are being partially funded by the Province of Ontario.
