As some of you are already aware, last night Toronto Police and Firefighters were called to the Jamie Bell Playground in High Park shortly before 3 a.m. and found the volunteer built children’s playground on fire. The damage to the playground is extensive and Police are appealing to the public for information on the arson suspects responsible for setting the fire.
This playground (which lies just beyond our Ward 14 boundary) has been a favourite place for children not only in Wards 13 and 14, but around the city to come play, imagine and learn. While I am saddened by this unfortunate event, I know our community will come together to rebuild this important feature of the neighbourhood.
If you are a Ward 14 resident and would like to help rebuild the Jamie Bell Playground in High Park, please contact my office at email@example.com or call at (416) 392-7919. We will be in correspondence with Councillor Doucette for the rebuilding effort and will pass on more information as it becomes available.
