City Wants Your Opinion on a Pedestrian Friendly Gore Park

The Gore Park Master Plan is looking for our input into the plan to make Gore Park more pedestrian friendly. The plan is to remove the buses from the south side and make the area open for some changes.

Have your opinion heard and hear other people's ideas. There will be 3 sessions on September 9 to see display boards and to get our ideas.

2 p.m  display boards set up in Gore Park.  No presentation, but staff on hand to answer questions.
Two other presentations will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 150 King St. East, Pavilion A, Level 3

3 - 5 p.m. with a 3:30 presentation
6 - 8 p.m. with a 6:30 presentation

Greeting Rush Hour Traffic

North End "greeters" met traffic using Bay Street to cut through the neighbourhood, or to attend a 7:30 Rotary Club breakfast at the Chamber of Commerce.

About 20 residents carrying signs saying "Children Live Here - Drive Slowly", "Pedestrian Friendly Driving", " Is Driving Fast Fair To Residents?" walked the Bay Street sidewalk beginning at 7:00 am.

Drivers slowed down! One driver, Tim, stopped and came by to talk to us, saying he was fully in support! Thanks Tim!

Recycling worked! Very little garbage was left thanks to these "recyling instructors"! And the park was spotless! What a great group!
The games were a lot of fun - and so were the prizes!


Park N' Party was a great success. Everyone enjoyed the weather and friends, and even touched reptiles!
