Downsview Park consists of 572 acres of land in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area. Formerly a military base (CFB Toronto), the site was designated by the Government of Canada in 1994 to be developed as "a unique urban recreational green space for the enjoyment of future generations." Plans and designs for building the Park have been steadily in development since then. The Park attracts more than 900,000 visitors annually and is home to numerous enterprises, including the Toronto Aerospace Museum, Downsview Park GrandPrix Kartways, The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, The Toronto Wildlife Centre, Rail Skate Park, Area 51 Paintball and Downsview Park's Action Sports Complex which features the HoopDome and the Hangar, which offers indoor soccer and beach volleyball. Downsview Park also hosts a roster of community and school programs year-round to create a vibrant resource for the national community. All these attractions and a host of other business relationships and opportunities help to set the stage for the future development of an internationally significant sustainable community at Downsview Park.
