Parks

The Upper Jarvis area is under-represented with parkland.    Although it is a predominantly residential area, it contains only one public park, beside the Rekai Centre on Wellesley.     [Another small private triangular park belonging to Rogers is at the north ‘wedge’ end of its property on Huntley.   This park features a large tree sculpture by Michael Snow.]

The UJNA is working to find ways to increase the parks in our neighbourhood.     We are lobbying to have Section 37 developer contributions for nearby upcoming projects to be ear-marked for such use and are working with our Councillor to find suitable locations for additional green space and child-friendly play space.
