Dentonia Park Community Initiatives

Good day Dentonia Park Community!

We're hot off the heels of a meeting with our City Councillor, Janet Davis and what an exciting meeting it was. Janet is keen on supporting our Community's initiatives and shares our enthusiasm for using our beautiful green spaces to realize them. Some fantastic ideas tossed into the mix included community engagement of the Dentonia Park Clubhouse, the Maryland Park playground revitalization, the skating rink, a winter festival, an Easter egg hunt, a community garden and are you ready for this neighbours.... maybe, just maybe, an opportunity to really look at how our awesome parks can be laid out to establish optimum connectivity within our hood and beyond-super cool!

Want to hear more? Janet and her office superstars will help us organize a community meeting to discuss all of the above and beyond and where else could it be? That's right, the Dentonia Park Clubhouse. We'll keep you posted here on the date for this proposed meeting. So get your ideas ready and bring them on Dentonia Park Community.

Have a great weekend Dentonia Park Community and as always we would love to hear from you. Leave a comment or drop us a note at dentoniaparkcommunity@gmail.com.

Maryland Playground Committee Needed

Good day Dentonia Park Community!

Well our Summer holidays may be coming to an end but our fun will keep on going with the eagerly anticipated revitalization of our very own Maryland Park playground. A big thank you to all of our neighbours for their thoughtful and creative comments and suggestions for this new playground.

So what does our community want from this playground? Well the buzz is all about imaginative play, inter-generational play and natural play all in a very unique setting. We expected nothing less from a neighbourhood expressing the very same attributes. No, a cookie-cutter playground won't do here and let's make sure we incorporate sun shade.

If we want to realize our playground ambitions we need to organize our creative ideas for the impending community consultation meeting with our City Councillor. So here's calling on all volunteers to form a committee for the Playground Revitalization of Maryland Park (PROMP). As an added bonus for volunteering you will get an opportunity to choose a better name for this committee!

Maryland Park Playground Revitalization

Good day Dentonia Park Community and good work neighbours! Our voices have been heard and it looks like our little playground in Maryland Park will be getting a complete overhaul in the near future. Councillor Davis has kindly sent a note to our little blog to tell us about the newly secured funds for this playground's replacement. On July 31st, Councillor Davis wrote:

Hi Dentonia Park People,
I'm happy to let you know that I was able to get a playground replacement allocation in the City parks budget for 2013/14.  We will have a community consultation about the improvements you'd like to see.  I look forward to meeting with you to talk about the playground and how we can animate our wonderful green spaces.  Thanks again!

Janet

Let's Talk Palygrounds

Let's Talk Palygrounds

Good day Dentonia Park Community. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

We have some great playgrounds in and around our neighbourhood like our very own awsome playground and splashpad in Dentonia Park - talk about a popular spot in the summer evenings, you can hardly see the playground through the kids and parents. It's so busy, often folks will spillover to our little Maryland Park playground but what a sad sight that play area has become. Poor Maryland Park playground, you look so unloved! Yes, we all have noticed that the little playground is in need of a facelift (or maybe a transplant). What do you say we put a buzz in our City Councillor's ear about this much needed playground revitalization? It would be great to have another fabulous playground in our hood to keep all the kiddies happy. Let's hear from you Dentonia Park Community for a new playground in Maryland Park!
