Crew Cut

One thing I know about Danforth East is that we are obsessed with our parks. Nary a day goes by that East Lynn, Monarch or any of the other green spaces aren't filled to the brim with people, kids, dogs, strollers and bikes.

Since the strike started, our neighbourhood parks aren't that fun to hang out in - the grass is getting long, garbage isn't being picked up and they're starting to look a little forlorn. As well, the streets out front of the parks are becoming derelict (I know, strong word but it's true!).

A group of good samaritan neighbourhood folk are coming to the rescue and have organized a neighbourhood cleanup of East Lynn Park and the Danforth area around the park. Mowers will be brought, garbage will be tossed and order will be atleast partially restored.

They are asking for people to come on down and chip in - the more hands, the lighter the work, right? Wednesday, July 22 from 6:30 - 8pm.

Seriously, even coming down and picking up a few pieces of garbage won't ruin your manicure!


  1. We'll be there for sure to help out. We don't have a mower, but will bring garbage bags and a broom to clean up.

  2. I'm not saying it's a bad idea, but why would they schedule it during the Wednesday evening jazz in the parkette?
