Since KCS opened its doors in 1989, Humbertown Park has been home to KCS students for 11,600 recesses, 29 Sports Days and 13 years of Terry Fox Runs. In the 2016-17 school year, the park was unusable for approximately 20 days because of ice and mud.
Humbertown Park is a well-used, well-loved, park in the heart of the Kingsway community with a rich history. It was the home of the Toronto Argonauts’ practices from 1993-1995. Extensive daily use has caused the park to get worn down and is in need of renovations. The City of Toronto isn’t scheduled
to upgrade Humbertown Park for another decade, so KCS has led the charge to restore this park to its former glory and make it a fun place to play that also supports all our school athletics, spirit days, citizenship events and recesses.
On May 27, 2017, nearly 400 guests gathered at The ROM for The KCS SPEAKEASY: PLAY FOR THE PARK GALA to launch the campaign for Humbertown Park. Together, we raised $210,000 towards our $1 Million Campaign goal so that we can invest in play. Two new playground structures are designed with children’s needs in mind. A natural material structure for younger children and a second structure focused on older youth will replace the existing playground. An outdoor classroom and seating area, a walking loop and a renovated field with new irrigation will make Humbertown Park a great place to play games, show team spirit and make memories.
Thank you to all our dedicated Gala Committee, generous donors and sponsors for making this event a spectacular success and for investing in play.
