Dundas and Kingston Road Parkette Design Released

As a result of the work planned on Kingston Road this summer, a new parkette at the corner of  Kingston Road and Dundas will be constructed. The corner will be redesigned to be safer for pedestrians, driver and cyclists and new seating and green space will be installed. A public meeting was held last fall with local residents, the Councillor and planning staff.

Please let us know what you think!

Below are the conceptual drawings for the newly designed corner.

‘Ride the Ravine’ will Explore the Beaches

Councillor McMahon is a huge supporter of Toronto’s ravines.

On June 16th Ride the Ravine is your best chance to explore Toronto’s hidden valley system and to raise money for a great organization. This year it will pass right through Ward 32, including Ashbridges Park, Kew Park, and then head right up Main Street.
