There's a pop-up consultation tomorrow (Sat. Feb. 21) for the West Queen West planning study. Takes place at Trinity Rec. Centre lobby (155 Crawford St.) 10am to 12pm. Stop by to chat with a city planner about one of the world's great streets. Please find the time, this is a rare opportunity to give your two-bits and have a look at what a planning study entails.
Wed. Jan 21st, 6:30pm at Trinity Comunity Rec Centre, there's a Ward 19 Budget Town Hall meeting hosted by our Councillor Mike Layton. Wonder if there's money slated for parks.....hmmmm, guess we all better go and see what's up!

Who are we?
Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park is a volunteer group that works together to improve the green space, cultural and recreational activities of Trinity Bellwoods Park. Its volunteer members have founded and operate a weekly summer farmers market, coordinate an Adopt-A-Tree program to water and nurture the new planted saplings in the park, created and operate a greenhouse as an educational and community resource, present bulb and shrub planting events in collaboration with Parks & Recreation and respond to community issues that affect the park. Since 2001, Friends of Trinity Bellwoods has been recognized by Parks & Rec and by our Councillor as the vehicle of community consultation for the park. We are a diverse group who are willing to share new ideas, respect other points of view, and participate in a collaborative process to create a vibrant community park.
Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park have no financial backing from outside sources. We have been able to realize our initiatives (i.e. costs associated with the Adopt-a-Tree initiative, green house, Park Days, Clean up Days and the commissioning of the 2009 Tree Inventory) by soliciting donations from film shoots and Special Events that occur in the park – which is truly hit & miss – and the occasional private citizen. Our Farmers Market, so far, has been able to contribute the past several years and plan to on an annual basis. We are not flush, so if you would like to make a donation to the Friends, we will gladly accept. Just drop us an email for more info.
