Mayor's Message

On behalf of King Township Council, welcome to the May edition of the King Bulletin.

April 21 was an historic day in King Township as we broke ground on the new Township-Wide Recreation Centre.

The centre, scheduled to be completed in 2024, will be built on the southeast corner of Seneca’s King City campus.

The project is a true partnership with the Federal and Provincial governments and local developers contributing funding towards the cost of building the centre and Seneca leasing the land to us for the cost of $1 a year for 99 years.

Once complete, the centre will be a place where King Township residents will be proud to gather for years to come.

You can read more about the centre below.

In other good news, construction of Phase 2 of Tasca Park in Nobleton is about to begin. Many new features will be added, including an off-leash dog park, permanent washroom facilities, tennis and pickleball courts, biking course, paving the trails and services for a community-led outdoor rink.

These features are being added after consultation with the community. More information on the upgrades can be found below.

As we continue shifting to a new normal, our excellent community events are returning. This includes the always popular King City Craft Beer and Food Truck Festival, which will take place Saturday, June 11. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, visit

Finally, on behalf of council and residents, I’d like to congratulate the recipients of our annual Volunteer Appreciation Awards, including this year’s Citizen of the Year, Michelle Frauley. After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, we were able to recognize their selfless acts that make King Township such an amazing place to live. For more information on the winners, including lots of photos from the event, please

Please continue to stay safe, volunteer and shop locally as much as you can.

Township-Wide Recreation Centre groundbreaking

King Breaks Ground on New Township-Wide Recreation Centre

The Township of King broke ground on April 22 on a Township-Wide Community Centre in King City, which is made possible with funding support from the federal and provincial governments, Seneca and local developers.

Scheduled to open in 2024, the centre will feature 124,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor facilities and is being constructed on 25 acres at the southeast corner of Seneca’s King Campus.


The Government of Canada is investing over $21.1 million in the centre through the Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada plan. The Government of Ontario is providing over $17.6 million.

The Township of King is providing over $20 million, mostly through development charges, with another $16 million contributed by developers as community benefits. Seneca and King have signed a 99-year lease agreement for the land at a cost of $1 per year.

Centre Features

In late 2019 and early 2020, King met with residents from across the Township to get their input into the features of the new centre. As a result of the feedback, and due to the funding received, a larger pool and second ice pad were included in the project plan. The centre will also feature a multi-use field house with access to future amenities that could include baseball and soccer fields.

With the Township’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the project is exploring energy-efficient measures, such as natural ventilation, reclaiming waste heat from the refrigeration system and an open-loop geothermal heat exchange.

Tasca Park Phase 2

Nobleton’s Tasca Park slated for many new features this year

An award-winning park in Nobleton is about to get even better as the next phase of construction at Tasca Park is scheduled to start this Spring.

Tasca Park, located on Parkheights Trail, is a 21-acre park that currently includes playgrounds, a soccer field, splash pad, skateboard park, toboggan hill, fitness circuit and shade structure.

The Phase 2 process included gathering community input into the elements of the final design.

The next phase of development includes a mountain biking pump course, permanent washrooms, paving of all pathways, tennis and pickleball courts and a dog park.

Tasca Park was named the winner of Parks and Recreation Ontario’s PRO Award of Excellence for design for a community under 30,000 residents back in 2017.

The park got its name from Joe Tasca and family who have donated their time to the community in countless ways over the years. Part of the park is also situated on what used to be the Tasca family farm.

Municipal water flushing

The Public Works Department flushes all water mains and hydrants in King City, Nobleton, Schomberg and Ansnorveldt in the spring. As a result, residents over the course of the next few weeks may experience low pressure and/or discoloration. This process contributes to the safe, effective delivery of municipal water and does not affect the safety of your water. Should you require further information please contact the Public Works Department at 905-833-5321.

The Township of King will begin its street sweeping program this month, weather-permitting. Sand and debris are swept from King’s roads to prevent materials from clogging the storm sewers and to provide a safe and clean roadway for all users. King rotates the areas swept each year. The locations to be swept starting in May, as weather permits, are:

May 2-6 – Nobleton

May 9-13 – King City

May 16-19 – Schomberg

Residents are asked to not park or block residential streets to avoid blocking street sweeping operations.
