ACAPO FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND – TEMPORARY DOGS OFF-LEASH AREA
For ACAPO this coming weekend, the Parks has agreed to make the ‘Bellwoods Park’ area of the park the official off leash zone - this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This is the area bordered by Dundas, Shaw and Crawford - where the Farmers Market is located on Tuesdays - which is regularly on-leash. The market organizers ask dog owners to please be respectful to our market location and to pick up after your pets, as there are environment health concerns. Also please be mindful of the recently mulched areas under some trees.
There have been complaints about dogs running loose in the on-leash zones - particularly in the evening when people are commuting through the park. By-law enforcement officers will be called in if the situation continues.
Thank you for your cooperation. And please let the Friends Dog Committee know how this temporary alternative off-leash area has worked.
TRI-BELL WEEDING CREW - weedfest
The Tri-Bell weeding crew is coming out of hibernation this Sunday! Well, so far it's Patricia and I, but if you’re interested in joining us that would be great -- bring along your tools and a thermos of tea.
As usual, a note of caution -- this little initiative is for gardeners meaning it’s not a supervised event and if you don’t know your weeds from your perennials then it’s probably not for you. However, company is always nice!
We haven't decided yet which beds to start on but there's plenty to choose from – those around the Rec Centre, the beds by the main gates?
WHEN: Sunday, June 8, ‘08 at 10:30am
WHERE: Rec Centre (look for 2 bent over women in and around the building)
BRING: You’ll need your own supplies. Here’s a suggested list of things to bring along:
- a gardening gloves (for yourself)
- a gardening fork (to loosen dirt around plants so water soaks in)
- a trowel or other preferred tool for weed digging (try to get roots of the darn weeds)
- a paper bag for weeds, etc
- a green garbage bag for litter, etc
Best – Michaelle and Patricia
