Sunday Picnic in Campbell Park

Judging from old photographs, the parks of this neighbourhood have been busy gathering places for many years. The image above of Carlton Park captures a festive day in 1914. And one of Perth Square shows a heated baseball game underway in 1920, played out in jackets and ties, with neighbours crowded at the fence.

Campbell Park skating: Final weekend!

It's hard to believe, but skating season is almost over at our local rink at Campbell Park. The rink closes after Sunday February 28th, and the final pleasure skating session is on Saturday February 27th from 4:00-6:00pm.

The Saturday afternoon pleasure skate has been a huge success this year. Many people from all over the neighbourhood are coming, not just for the skating but to hang out in the friendly outdoor atmosphere with other neighbours. Lots of kids, and people just learning how to skate too. Even if you don't really like skating, it's fun to just hang out at the park and chat with people, or warm up by the campfire with some freshly-made donuts and hot chocolate.

For pleasure skating and shinny schedules, please check the City Rinks website.

Hope to see you all there.

Campbell Park dump cleaned up.....almost

As you probably already know and have even possibly experienced in one way or another, Campbell Park was used as a temporary garbage dump during the recent City of Toronto workers strike.

The "garbage strike", as it was often referred to, lasted for just over one month, and our local rink at Campbell Park was used as a temporary dump site for approximately two weeks starting around July 16th. A group of residents calling themselves Friends of Campbell Park protested the use of Campbell Park as a dump.

Over the August long weekend, City Staff finally hauled the garbage away and started to clean up the rink. However, people are reporting that the site is still contaminated with the sticky leftovers of two weeks worth of garbage runoff.

Since I was away and unable to truly experience the effects of this strike on Campbell Park myself, I will leave it up to these media / blog / photo links to tell the story. If you have any of your own stories or comments about how this strike affected our neighbourhood, please feel free to share them in the comments below.
