Awards for the great gardens of Leaside

[Not a valid template]They were placed on six great front gardens in our hood that were named Gardens of Distinction this July. It’s a new initiative by the Leaside Garden Society, reviving the idea from the 1990s when the garden societies of both Leaside and East York partnered in the Mayor’s Annual Blooming Contest (mayor of East York that is). This year’s winners were selected by a volunteer committee from the LGS, led by volunteer and Leaside resident Barry Schneider. They are 1 Kenrae Rd., 35 Heather Rd., 34 Parkhurst Blvd., 5 Divadale Dr., 36 Donlea Dr. and 142 Glenvale Blvd.
