Curran Hall Community
Area: the residential area south of Ellesmere, east of Scarborough Golf Club Road, west of Highland Creek, north of Lawrence

Welcome to Curran Hall!
Thank you to John Barrett, a long time Curran Hall resident for joining me at the unveiling of the new “Welcome to Curran Hall Community” community sign located on the southeast corner of Orton Park Road and Ellesmere Road. I have been receiving many positive remarks on the signs. (The other one is located at the northeast corner of Orton Park Road and Lawrence Ave East!).

City Street Furniture Installation in your Community

Botany Hill Park: This Winter, Parks’ staff began constructing a shelter adjacent to the off-leash dog park.  I want to thank all of the residents who reached out to my office, and Parks’ staff, to make the case for one to be built.

I am aware of the need to replace the playground structure. This was reinforced recently at a meeting held by the Curran Hall Community Association. Repairs to some broken pieces were made after the meeting, by Parks 'staff. The playground in Botany Hill Park is on the list for replacement in two years. There is a “State of Good Repair” list which covers parks across the City of Toronto.   The budget to replace a playground is $150,000 - $200,000 depending on the size and amenities to be installed.  In the interim, staff have agreed to my request to paint the playground equipment to address its current condition.

Bus Route on Brimorton Road/Scarborough Golf Club Road/Orton Park Road: I would like to thank residents for continuing to send in their support forms for a bus route from Ellesmere along Scarborough Golf Club Road, Brimorton Road, and Orton Park Road and back to Ellesmere.  Please continue to send them in!
