We are a group of people who live around Christie Pits and who think our park needs some Friends to advocate for it and give it some love. The Friends formed in August 2007 and one of our first activities has been to water and protect the 91 trees planted in the park in Summer 2007.
Future activities we plan for 2008 are continued care for the trees and advocating for planting more trees around the perimeter of the park. This year we would also like to work with the park’s staff to help plan activities and enliven what is already a very vibrant park.
We believe that by introducing users of the park to each other, and by organizing communally, we build a circle of Friends not just for the park, but for ourselves
