Blog reader Dave has asked for a post about the High Park Family Fun Place and what people think about it ?
I can place this post up but it’s up to everyone to say what they think of the idea.
1st your author has to declare that the blog is out of it at times,such as when this sign went up the whole womans gym idea which I had heard about went out the window. Why? because if I think clearly this new concern is the effort of two Junction people who I know and for which I have looked at the business plan.
What I do know is that Jennifer and Pierre (and you would find it hard to find two more committed people) working considerably to round out this idea. All along I viewed the idea as a ‘community place’ where kids can play with parents, local people can meet and a lot of activities can happen.
It is a very unique concept, it can read about at their web site http://www.hpfamilyfunplace.ca.
I for one think the idea is great.
