Emily Park is approximately 1.01 acres in size and is located at 35 Thompson Drive, in Holland Landing. The park currently features senior play equipment and an open play area with mature trees surrounding the perimeter of the park. Adjacent to Emily Park is 9.55 acres of Town-owned open space. Currently this site accommodates multiple stormwater management facilities.


The Town has identified Emily Park and the Simcoe Trail extension as capital project. The Emily Park redesign and redevelopment will include replacing the current playground structure, adding outdoor fitness equipment, creating accessible asphalt walkways, and site furniture. The development of the Simcoe Trail extension will establish Emily Park as a trailhead and extend throughout the Town's open space. This trail will connect Emily Park to Stonehill Boulevard with a formal connection established to Oak Ridge Court. The trail will be a combination of limestone screenings and boardwalk that will serve as an important active transportation link within the community.
