·2· Park events

01-Mar-2012 [1056]

Neighbourhood parks are meant for peaceful reflection, joyful games, and the liveliness of neighbourhood sociability. This last element is officially referred to as “events,” a category ranging from extended-family birthday parties to open-air theatre performances to larger acts (for instance the annual September pow wow at Dufferin Grove Park). The City, in its urgent quest for more revenue, has added permit charges to almost all park activities, including a fee for a new category called “social gatherings.” This bulletin board will chronicle the resistance to charging fees for community events.
