Executive Director's Message - June 2017

School is coming to a close and the hot summer weather is slowly showing its scorching ways. When the weather is hot visit Joseph Bannon Park where kids and adults alike can take advantage of the splash pad. Located at 65 Mary Chapman Blvd. conveniently nestled in a safe environment, keeping cool is easy.

On July 7, join us for Movie in the Park. The screening of a feature family film will start at dusk, again located at Joseph Bannon Park. The entire family can bring blankets and cozy up with treats under the stars.

Film title still to be determined, so stand by.

For the summer months ahead, plan to explore the living city.

By visiting Toronto and Region Conservation for The Living City (TRCA): https://trca.ca, you can easily find many daily workshops and walking tours that will keep everyone’s sense of exploration and wonder at the top of the list. Have fun and learn more about our surroundings and what initiatives are being placed to keep our environment alive.
