Pool painting at Columbus Parkette

Last weekend the weather held out and I joined over 20 adults and children gathered at Columbus Parkette to paint the pool, enjoy a community BBQ and have some fun!

I am happy to say that since my first park walkabout with residents I have been working very hard to make necessary improvements to this great park space. As some of you are aware I am committed to working with residents and stakeholder groups to improve accessibility and strengthen neighbourhood connections to park spaces all across ward 14 (look for a future posting on a BRAND NEW PARK in the ward!!). The Columbus Parkette Beautification Project, led by a strong community, is committed to working with my office to transform this park space to create a sense of ownership and community-building for the neighbourhood at large. I am pleased to be a part of their first accomplishments and look forward to participating in their future successes.
