Based in Etobicoke, the 3.2-hectare park opened in 1967. In July 2015, the new BMX extension, the Centennial Park Pan Am BMX Centre, hosted Toronto's Pan Am Games' BMX competitions. The new construction includes a 350-metre track, and a fixed eight-metre ramp designed to the certification standards of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). An adjacent service building has also been constructed. The centre will be accessible to the public when the games have ended, along with a newly constructed five-metre ramp.
Receptacles are provided along the track, as well an empty conduit system under the track for video cabling, temporary feeds and timing loops. Additional distribution equipment was added to accommodate the power and lighting for the track and new storage building.
