Updates to Edithvale Park

Edithvale Park and Community Centre (131 Finch Ave W) is one of our busiest hubs for recreation.  John has continued to work with the community and City PF&R staff to make the park more functional for its users.  The next set of updates will begin in the fall of 2017 with the restoration of the Native Plant Garden.  Many residents have seen this area tarped off to remove a number of invasive plants and weeds.  The new garden will be designed as a natural habitat for butterflies, bees and other natural species.  Also starting in the fall will be a project to install new basketball courts, a new baseball backstop, an adult fitness circuit and new lighting throughout the park.  We expect the work to be completed in early 2018.
