Before it was Monarch Park, it was Ashbridge’s Woods, at the north end of the Ashbridge Estate which extended from Ashbridge’s Bay to Danforth Avenue.
Here is an invitation to visit Monarch Park from Paula Fletcher, Councillor Ward 30:
This Saturday, October 19 I will be co-hosting a Tree Tour of Monarch Park with Jessica Piskorowski from LEAF (Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests). I hope you’ll join neighbours and nature lovers to explore the urban canopy.
This year 64 new trees have been planted in Monarch Park, which puts us over the top for our goal of 1000 new trees planted in Ward 30 since 2010! I’m excited to continue strengthening our urban forest – let’s keep up the great work. The new trees in Monarch Park need care to help them thrive, and Friends of Monarch Park will be coordinating an adopt-a-tree program to protect our newly planted trees as they take root.
What: Monarch Park Tree Tour.
Where: Monarch Park – Meet at the North East corner of the park by the large rocks.
When: Saturday, October 19, 2013, 11:30 a.m – 1:00 p.m. (rain or shine).
Suggested donation: $5.00
I hope to see you this Saturday!
Councillor Paula Fletcher
Ward 30 – Toronto Danforth
