Humber Bay Shores Farmers Market
Last Saturday, June 1st, marked the first day of the Humber Bay Shores farmers market in Humber Bay Park West. Several hundred local residents came out to sample the locally grown Ontario produce while walking along the beautiful shores of Lake Ontario. Hosted by the Humber Bay Shores Condominium Association the farmers market runs every Saturday until the end of Summer. I hope to see you there.
Mimico Linear Park Grand Opening
On Friday June 7, 2013 I was pleased to attend the grand opening of phase 2 of the Mimico Linear Park. Opened to the public in November of 2012, the 500 metre extension brings the new park to its full length of 1.1 kilometres. With a budget of $18.2 million, the park was funded by all three levels of government and overseen by Waterfront Toronto.
I can not stress enough what a great community asset the park has become. Starting at the foot of Norris Crescent, pedestrians and cyclists can now head all the way into the downtown core along the lake front path network. The Linear Park includes rehabilitated and naturalized areas to support wildlife as well as several sections of boardwalk and separated trails for cyclists and pedestrians.
Councillor Grimes grand re-opening for Marie Cutis Park, previously scheduled for Saturday, June 8, 2013, has been postponed. A new date will be distributed in the coming weeks.
