Parks staff warn nearly 200,000 on waiting list for recreational programs and facilities.
With Toronto’s parks and recreation facilities in huge demand, city council approved a long-term $2 billion plan Thursday to build and maintain them across the city.
In 2016, parks staff reported the waiting lists for programs and facilities had 198, 228 names on them — more than double what it was in 2007. At that rate, they warn that number could top 400,000 by 2025.
