Queen's Park is located along the south side of Dundas Street, between Ontario Street and Egerton Street. It is the last piece of the original eighteen (18) hectare parcel established in 1879 as a public park named Queen's Park, now the site of the Western Fair Grounds.
The redevelopment of Queen's Park has been identified as a priority in the Planners Action Team report entitled "Re-establishing Value - A Plan for the Old East Village". This report recognized that there is a need to provide more open space in the neighbourhood and a positive and visible enhancement to the Dundas Street corridor. At the heart of the Old East Village, Queen's Park has the potential to become one of London's main urban parks.
The Queen's Park Master Plan was completed by Vafiades Landscape Architects Inc, working with the Queen's Park Steering Committee. This committee included representatives from the City of London, the Old East Village Business Association, the Old East Village Community Association, and the Western Fair Association.
