Parks & Community Gardens

Our community features some of Toronto’s best parks, which are both centrepoints for our local residents and destinations for those visiting our neighbourhoods. But our challenge remains improving park facilities as they age while finding new and exciting ways to enhance our use of parks.

Working with local residents and organizations, I’ve championed the inclusion of community gardens within our parks as not only a way of growing fresh local food and building awareness of food security, but as a vital way to enrich our community

I also continue to work closely with local ‘Friends Of’ groups to animate our parks, and find creative ways to improve and better use our park facilities. Parks are such an important part of our lives, and investing in their upkeep and maintenance is essential for our community.
