Update: I seem to have upset the JRA as they have read in the post that I was stating theyof not holding public consultation efforts…so this was not my intention or belief as I do believe they do.
The purpose of the post to have the parks departments (without being too tough on the people you are in contact with) to hold a design community meeting. This is simply to capture all the people in the community that use the park, which is part of their responsibility.
Vine Parkette has 100,000 dollars for new play equipment earmarked in the parks capital budget if city council approvals (time to email Sara”s office). The current play structure was installed a couple years ago and certified for children ages 5-12. What type of equipment do you believe would improve Vine Parkette? Recently, the blog was told by local pre-teens that monkey bars and other climbing/balancing apparatus would be appreciated by the older kids. What specific equipment would you like to see in the park?
The blog would like to propose that the Junction Residents Association and the City of Toronto Parks Department hold a design meeting alongside the community to collaboratively design the park so that all voices can be heard.
