Councillor Jon Burnside announced just before our deadline that he has arranged for city parks staff to do a one-time clean-up of the weed-overgrown gardens at Leaside Arena, date to be determined.
Burnside said, “My vision long term is that other community groups will also take responsibility for a section – the Rotary Club will look after a plot, Boy Scouts or Girl Guides, or maybe some hockey teams.”
Cate Woodward, whose aquafit group was featured in our July issue weeding the beds next to the pool, welcomed the news. “We are pioneers here!” she noted in an email.
If you or your group are interested in helping contact Burnside (416-392-0215) or the arena (416-421-4944).
