ABOUT THE NEIGHBOURHOOD HERITAGE STUDY

The purpose of the Queen’s Park Neighbourhood Heritage Study was to examine various ways to retain and enhance the neighbourhood’s character. It began in 2013 and was completed in 2016 with final recommendations to Council. Below you can find Council reports, newsletters, and consultation materials that document the progress of the Study.

The Study was informed by research tasks and neighbourhood consultation, conducted by a Working Group of local residents. More information about the Working Group is available in the next dropdown.
