The MacGregor Playground evolved overtime from its role as sporting fields for local intramural sporting teams, to a park incorporating areas for children and youth along the Lansdowne Avenue frontage and one remaining clay softball field occupying the western half of the Park.

Community soundings were held in the Park and organized by Botanicus, they were well attended and great interest was expressed in improving both the Park and the Fieldhouse to reflect the evolving needs of the surrounding community.

Botanicus Art Ensemble commissioned a Feasibility Study for the MacGregor Playground Fieldhouse, to investigate how the building might be transformed into a year-round community hub supporting park use and community programming.
