The Kew Gardens Streetscaping Public Workshop was held at the Beaches Rec. Centre on March 18th. Residents from across the neighbourhood shared their ideas for the north end of the park and the stretch of Queen Street East immediately adjacent. Attached is a visual and written summary of the Workshop prepared by PLANT Architects.

Just in time to close out the summer, the renovations to Norwood Park are complete.
Check out the newly paved walkways and benches around the park.
Have a seat on the new benches by the shaded sandboxes.
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!
In July, the Councillor’s Office organized a Main Square Madness Party for local residents. The area residents, the Councillor, and her staff got their hands dirty and began the process of beautifying a garden (behind the recreation centre). As well, Monica donated her time to paint some innovative murals for the area. The beautification project is now complete! Check out the pictures below. If you get a chance, visit the site and enjoy its new look.
