Share a little cheer this Holiday Season

Posted on December 17, 2009

On December 8th community members, friends, donors & other supporters met at 194 Dowling Avenue on the site being developed as “Edmond Place”to launch PARC’s ‘Capital Challenge’. I regret that I was unable to attend, but understand that PARC has successfully raised 95% of their capital goal and hopes to raise the final 5%, which represents $ 340,000, before Edmond Place opens in about a year.

.

Edmond Place is developed in partnership by Parkdale Activity-Recreation Centre and Habitat Services. Edmond Place has been made possible through the financial support of the Government of Canada, the Government of Ontario, and the City of Toronto.

If you would like to make a donation to PARC please visit: http://parc.on.ca/

For more information on the launch, see link to the Parkdale Liberty Villager:

Lastly, if you are looking for ways to share a little cheer with people who are homeless this year please visit the City website. Staff asked those on the front lines who run the shelters, drop-ins and other services for homeless people what would really bring a smile to their clients’ faces; requests are listed on the website below.

Agency wish lists can be seen at http://www.toronto.ca/housing/wishlist.htm.

Please note that the Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre (PARC), Romero House and Sistering have all posted wishes this season.

Please remember to shop locally this Holiday Season.

Outdoor Rinks

Posted on December 17, 2009

A listing of all 49 outdoor ice rinks with seasonal operating dates is available at www.toronto.ca/parks

Members of the public are invited to call 3.1.1 for opening and closing hours and supervised program schedules for their local rink. If a rink is taken out of service for any reason, maintenance staff endeavours to keep the 311 call centre up-to-date with current conditions and schedule changes.

For the second year, members of the public can access outdoor rink surfaces during times when staff are not scheduled.

Extended Season

Again this year, Council has approved extended operations at 14 rinks (please see www.toronto.ca/parks) into the first 2 weeks of March, ending the season on March 14, 2010, weather permitting. Unfortunately, the recommended extended season will not provide for coverage of the March Break because the school holiday has been scheduled late, from March 15 to 19, 2010. Leisure skating and shinny opportunities are available at indoor arenas across the City during March Break; for times and details check out the Toronto FUN Guide, available on-line at www.toronto.ca/parks
