The David Suzuki Foundation is underwriting a great neighborhood parks initiative The Homegrown National Parks Project. Community residents are spearheading different green projects to beautify the Garrison Creek corridor. This Sunday, enjoy some of these local green projects through the Homegrown Park Crawl.
The Homegrown Park Crawl celebrates our local parks through food, music and community. It follows the path of Garrison Creek, starting in Christie Pits at 11am, with stops in Bickford Park and Fred Hamilton Park before finishing at Trinity Bellwoods Park later in the afternoon. The crawl between parks will feature parade marshalls and music. Each of the 4 parks will have food booths, eco activities, and entertainment from local performers.
The food is provided by local chefs and restaurants, including Pizzeria Libretto, and is paid with tickets which are already on sale online. Proceeds benefit the Homegrown National Parks Project, which means our parks and our community.
Here is the planned itinerary, so you can do the whole crawl, or just visit for part of it:
11:00am – Join us in Christie Pits Park to kick off the crawl
1:00pm – Crawl to Bickford Park
2:00pm – Parade to Fred Hamilton Park
3:00pm – Final parade to Trinity Bellwoods Park
