Green spaces are critical to sustainability
By Joe Cressy
What makes a livable community? As we continue to see growth across our downtown neighbourhoods, we must focus on building livable communities, not just adding density. We must build vibrant neighbourhoods, and to be vibrant, neighbourhoods need community spaces, cultural spaces, and, critically, green spaces.

A model for learning and sustainability
By Terri Chu
Two months ago, the province and the Toronto Catholic District School Board announced plans to build a new school on the site of St. Raymond Catholic School, which abuts Christie Pits. As a new parent, I’m very excited by the prospect of a new school in the neighbourhood, as well as for the opportunities presented by greenfield project (a development that is not limited by existing infrastructure or buildings), a rarity in this city.

Annual parks survey returns
Upkeep, or lack thereof, marks the return of our popular Grading our Greenspace feature. Published in two parts, we visit parks in our coverage area and review them based on cleanliness, amenities, and atmosphere. Our round-up reflects a mixed bag: some parks continued to be great, while others seem to have dipped further into mediocrity. Unkempt parks, with uncut grass, poorly maintained amenities, and dying flowerbeds, are a major complaint among park users, something that shouldn’t be difficult to address. With greenspace at a premium in our neighbourhoods, our parks have become more important than ever. What our reviews demonstrate is that parks, when well maintained, are thriving community hubs. We’ll publish our second part in the July edition and look forward to your comments, whether they be on parks or on our reviews. All reviews and photography were done by Geremy Bordonaro and Emily Rea.
