Jan 2012 update: Rogue art has been taken down by Parks. It was basically falling apart at this point, the cellophane creatures were split in half and more like drooping off the tree. Ergo - please take down your rogue art in a timely fashion. It doesn't do anybody and good to let it get 'tired'. What's the point. So, thus this anonymous art will live on in these images.
Here is the latest 'rogue art' installation that has shown up in the park. It's pretty cool and visually quite striking. Creepy, but in an interesting way. Be great to have an artist statement for sure. If anybody knows who the artist is, please contact us or have the artist post on our Facebook page. As the Friends are 'tree huggers' at heart and are all about care of the green space, we would like to ask the artist to be responsible in regards to take down - perhaps in the next week or so. We like to call it 'responsible rogue art'. The plastic ties that are attached to the young trees in the short term will do no harm, but long term will do damage. Also, with the weather as it is i.e. rain and pendint snow, these 'tree worms' will start looking shabby pretty quick. Thank you!
Friends of Trinity Bellwoods would like to thank all the people who signed our Don't Pave Our Park Petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/dontpaveourpark/. We want to give you an update on the current status of the West End Bikeway Proposal. In summary, upgrades of the route through the park are currently scheduled to begin next spring. We're pleased to report that there have been some concessions made in response to the petition.
It's that lovely time of year when the trees start turning vibrant colours, the ground is covered in a blanket of leaves of all shades - yellow, orange and brown. It's also a time when there's a little neglect in picking up after our pets have a poo - that's the 'brown'. Sure the park is not as busy as when it's warm, but, please remember to bring doggy waste bags with you and 'scoop the poop'. The park is shared and to be enjoyed by all. Let's all be considerate, besides it being a by-law, to our fellow patrons (in all matters). It's pretty yucky if your playing football, frisbee or tossing leaves with your kids and landing in some poo. In addition, there are serious health hazards connected that can cause blindness in children. Happy Autumn and enjoy the park, it's looking amazing right now.
