High Park Invasive Species Removal

Posted on August 16, 2017

The High Park Stewards want to make sure that the native plants in High Park have a fighting chance to grow by removing the invasive species that compete for space and resources. Weeding is as important as planting, and equally rewarding. Once the invasive species are removed, the native plants have room to grow, display their beauty, and provide food and shelter for wildlife. The Boulevard Beds group will work on our demonstration garden.

Meet in front of the Grenadier Restaurant at 10:30 am and go to the site from there to work until 12:30. For your protection, (heat, insects and skin irritants for some) please dress with long sleeves and pants, closed shoes and socks, a hat and bring water and sunscreen. They will supply tools and gloves. Everyone is welcome.

Sister Cities Mural Launch

Posted on July 20, 2017

The STEPS Initiative is thrilled to be animating one of Toronto’s busiest connections to the waterfront as part of an international cultural exchange between the City of Toronto and the City of Chicago, (sister cities since 1991) as part of the StreetARToronto Partnership Program.

Chicago artist, Justus Roe, his local Public Art Assistants, as well as members of the Parkdale – High Park community have been hard at work transforming the Roncesvalles Pedestrian Bridge to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday and the “Year of Public Art” taking place in Chicago.

They look forward to celebrating the completion of this new work with you – and ask that you RSVP by Monday, July 24th for this community event if you wish to attend! Click here to RSVP.

Join them for “Building Bridges of Flavour”, a locally inspired menu of refreshments, along with local musicians, artist Justus Roe, and Mayor John Tory.

The venue is served by the Queen, King, and Roncesvalles Streetcars, as well as the Martin Goodman Trail. It is wheelchair accessible, with free on-site parking.

Women Paint

Posted on July 4, 2017

With support from the City of Toronto Transportation Services Divisions’ StreetARToronto program, a talented mix of emerging and established Toronto-based artists will transform the laneway that runs north behind 1468-1486 Queen Street West — between Lansdowne Avenue and MacDonell Avenue — into an outdoor art gallery. Working side by side, the collective of all female artists will paint approximately 2,000 square feet of murals that respond to the theme of “Intersectional Feminism: Representing Diverse Experiences”.

As a closing celebration, community members, mural enthusiasts and interested Torontonians are invited to meet the artists and be inspired by the murals on Sunday, July 16 from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm.

StreetARToronto (StART) is supporting this project in partnership with the Toronto Police Service 11 Division through the StreetARToronto Toronto Police Service Partnership Program. StART is a pro-active program that develops, supports, promotes and increases awareness of street art and its unique role in adding beauty and character to neighbourhoods across Toronto, while also counteracting graffiti vandalism and its harmful effect on communities. StART’s mission is to revitalize and engage communities through street and mural art while embracing the City’s motto “Diversity our Strength”.
