Adopt-a-Tree Kick-Off - June 7

Adopted a tree last summer? Or wished you had? We need your help!

The trees planted last year need one more summer's worth of mulching and watering as they are still establishing their healthy root systems. 

We are looking for volunteers to help us mulch the trees on June 7th, and who will water "their" tree (or trees!) weekly this summer. 

Meetup at 9.30am near the playground. Shovels and refreshments will be provided! 

Please drop us a note at to adopt a tree or learn more.

Spring Maintenance

Thanks to our park manager, you will be seeing some improvements in the park soon:

- a broken bench in the playground will be repaired,
- the playground will be roto-tilled
- the playground sandbox will be topped up with new sand
- more No Smoking signs will be installed around the playground entrances. 
- garbage & recycling cans will be placed near the playground entrance and near the streetcar turnaround
- soap dispensers will be installed in the washrooms and kept full

In addition, a new cement pad has been created near the wading pool, to allow placement of a picnic table. The surrounding area has been roped off to allow new grass seed to sprout. 

These little things will really add up to a better park experience for all!

Kite Fest!

After a long and rainy week, Mother Nature came through for today's Kite Fest with blue skies and a good wind!

Thanks to all who came out! We had a great time seeing everyone, meeting new neighbours and watching the kites ride the breeze.

We are a GO for today!

No rain in the forecast, and windy midday. We are a GO for Kite Fest! 

See you in the park 12.30-2.30. Don't forget your kite!
