Howard Playground Update!

We are excited to give an update on the Howard Playground Revitalization Project!

This is the year we’re designing and fundraising for school yard enhancements.

Many of you will know about this project. For those who don’t, have a look at the attached presentation.

Playground Presentation!

In a nutshell: Our field has been designated as among the worst in Toronto and is being replaced with turf. When that happens, we have the chance to do a school yard renovation. The field is entirely funded by the TDSB. Work to the rest of the yard will be paid for by parent-led fundraising.

We are reaching out to ask if you’ll consider getting involved.

We need a lot of different types of people (see list below), but the bottom line is this:  if you’re motivated, you can help.

This is a chance for us to build social infrastructure for our kids, our friends’ kids, and the broader community. It’s a chance to pay it forward.

If you’re interested in lending a hand, will you please email with your name and preferred role?
