Maple Cottage Garden Volunteers


– there is not much info on this group. The info below is from “Toronto Gardens” blog, where the Maple Gottage Garden is explained.

Hidden away on quiet Laing Street that runs between Queen Street East and Eastern Avenue is a little piece of Canadiana that most Torontonians might be unaware of: Maple Cottage.

Standing at the corner of Memory Lane, Maple Cottage is named for the tall silver maple (Acer saccharinum) said to have inspired Alexandar Muir to write The Maple Leaf Forever in Canada's Confederation year 1867.

Like many of Toronto's historic landmarks, tree and cottage were almost swept away by development, until rescued by the City in 1992. Since then, an army of volunteers worked to save it, transforming it into a public space in 2005.

The most important part of the transformation has been the gardens, planted in the Victorian style to match the vintage of the charming worker's cottage.

Step through the pergola arch and follow the walkway from Laing through to the sunny Maple Leaf Forever Park behind the cottage. This is the ideal, green playground for Leslieville kids to kick around a soccer ball or take shady shelter in the lilacs planted at the edge.

We hope to have this park redesign and construction done by the 2012 summer season ... you can of course expect plenty more opportunities for formal community input as things move forward ... and of course the longest (informal) community meeting of all is just getting going -- our spring, summer and fall in the park!"

Nesbitt Park Association


Governor's Bridge Ratepayers Association

Governor's Bridge Ratepayers Association

A GBRA sub-committee has been busy working to ensure improvements in the green spaces in our neighbourhood. At the completion of the Rosemount Heights sewer project Nesbitt Park will be repaired. In order to try and have a replacement park that better suits the needs of the residents the committee is working with the Councilor’s office and soliciting community feedback.

This article is from September 22, 2010

Nesbitt Park gets $100,000 for new playground thanks to ratepayers association Nesbitt Park almost lost out on its share of the federal funding that's been improving parks and adding playgrounds across the city over the past few months.

But Cheryl Drynan made sure they got what she figured they deserved.

As president of the Governor's Bridge Ratepayers Association, when she was told that her neighbourhood's park would only receive $25,000 to help clean up the after effects of some municipal sewer digging that had gone on in the area, she went to her councilor, Case Ootes, to see how they could get more.

"We developed a good working relationship with Councillor Ootes," Drynan says. "We just kept at them and at them and at them about money, and we got a call in January saying that he had sought out some of the federal funding and that we would be granted $100,000."

Niagara Neighbourhood Now

Niagara Neighbourhood Now

Our main goal is to preserve the historical value and community feel that exists in this neighbourhood.

We are trying to deal with the issues that have occurred due to living in a vibrant, growing yet historically important area of a major urban city. We want to work with the builders of new projects to ensure that they bring a positive element to the area while reflecting its diverse nature. In 2005 the residents of this community, city planning and our councillor Joe Pantalone participated in several meetings to decide what was best for the future of this neighbourhood. The results of those meetings resulted in changes to the bylaws. The area bylaws were changed in 2006 to reflect the needs and desires of the community.


Stanley Park

named for Frederick Arthur, Baron Stanley of Preston, 16th Earl of Derby -- Governor General 1888 to 1893, also recalled in the Garrison's Stanley Barracks, Vancouver's Stanley Park and, more famously, hockeys' Stanley Cup

Victoria Memorial Mark

tucked south of Wellington, east of Bathurst. Much of the park was once occupied by the Garrison Burying Ground. In 1794 Elizabeth Simcoe's daughter Katherine, age 15 months, was the first person buried there; the last was Private James McQuarrick, in 1863. There are a few headstones naming the dead, many worn beyond legibility, gathered beneath a monument erected in 1902 . A bust sits on top of the monument: a soldier, his cap cradled in his arm, his face grief-stricken.

  Garrison Creek

Another important original feature of the area is the Garrison Creek . The creek ran from above Bloor to the waterfront. North of Bloor the creek was wide enough to use a boat and bridges were erected to provide passage over the valley .In the 1880s Garrison Creek was sent underground in a sewer starting in the south and finally by 1913 the north end of Garrison Creek had been sent underground. The City's motive was that streets were meant to run straight.

Today the area shows only scattered remnants of the Garrison Creek. At Walnut Street and Wellington a plaque set in the sidewalk shows that path from the lakefront to Davenport Road. Niagara curves gently southeast-- laid out more than 160 years ago along the old creek's east bank.

North Rosedale Ratepayers Association

North Rosedale Ratepayers Association
President: Phil Smith

Vice President: Lisa Conway
416-861-1315 x 404

  • The paragraphs below are excerpts from a 2010 report from NRRA President Phil Smith.

The NRRA, led by Lisa Conway, is embarking upon one of our most ambitious projects to date with the redevelopment of the Rosedale Park playground. Please refer to the feature article on the playground project in this edition Newsletter and visit our website for more information and how you can support this important neighbourhood project.

Politics should take centre stage throughout the year with a provincial by-election in February and the municipal elections in November. The by-election was prompted by the decision of our MPP George Smitherman to run for the Mayor’s office and, with the decision by Ward 27 Councillor Kyle Rae to leave municipal politics later this year, we will have a new City councillor in 2010. The NRRA will make every effort to represent the neighbourhood’s interests with potential candidates and to hold all candidates debates in the neighbourhood.

The NRRA will continue to work with the City in the area of infrastructure. We will be seeking to improve the quality of road surfaces in the neighbourhood (Glen Road in particular) and to make progress in rehabilitating sections of the Park Drive ravine. It is my hope that 2010 will be a year of meaningful and visible progress for North Rosedale.

Parks: The tree replanting program was completed in late November with the final trees being planted in the southwest corner of Rosedale Park. This completes a multi-year campaign to replace the Park’s aging tree canopy. Numerous park benches were repainted in Rosedale Park, Chorley Park and the Whitney Parkette, and the lighting in Rosedale Park was replaced.
