Community Benefits Workshops for Parkdale

Posted on August 22, 2017

The Parkdale Community Economic Development (PCED) is hosting a series of Community Benefits Workshops for Parkdale on Wednesday August 30th and Thursday September 7th*.

Come learn about new developments arriving in Parkdale, discuss how they will impact the neighbourhood, and collectively develop ideas for how these developments can be best leveraged to benefit our community.

Building on workshops held earlier this summer with ESL students and the PARC Ambassador and Co-op Cred program, these workshops will provide a platform for community members to express their thoughts and suggestions on how to ensure that new developments in Parkdale benefit the local community and strengthen its four overarching values: Inclusiveness, Affordability, Diversity and Equity. The workshops will help to establish a set of community demands that developers must adhere to when building in Parkdale.

Food and refreshments will be provided. Please note that the library is wheelchair accessible. Contact mzayas@parc.on.ca for childcare and/or translation needs.

Spaces are limited. RSVP encouraged but not required: https://parkdale-community-benefits-workshops.eventbrite.ca

*Please note that these workshops are identical and participants need only sign up for one workshop.

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.
