The multi-sports pad was made possible through the City of Toronto’s Partnership Opportunities Legacy (POL) Fund and was jointly funded by the federal and provincial governments under the Recreational Infrastructure Canada Program and the Ontario Recreation Program.

The POL Fund was created to build community infrastructure and enhance space for community programming and service needs. The fund gives priority to youth-focused initiatives at the neighbourhood level. For every dollar the City invests, approximately $1.90 has been leveraged in partnership funding. At program completion, it is anticipated that $37.7 million will have been invested in Toronto’s 13 priority neighbourhoods, of which $13 million is a direct City investment.
