CHATTER: Park still ignored by city (Oct. 2019)

Despite the public outcry city staff have still not taken steps to address the concerns of residents about the neglect of Paul Martel Park located on Madison Avenue. City councillor for University-Rosedale Mike Layton has joined the chorus of those advocating for a solution, “I have made repeated requests to parks staff to have the signage replaced and attend to the overall state of the park. With two retirements of parks managers within the south district, maintenance this year was a challenge as the positions were not permanently filled until the end of the summer.  Now that both those positions have been filled, I’m confident the city will be better able to respond to requests from the community.”

City of Toronto senior Park Supervisor Peter White remains unresponsive to requests from the Gleaner for comment.
