Ledbury Park Ribbon Cutting

TORONTO - September has been an exciting month for Toronto’s Ledbury Park Elementary and Middle School, as they kicked off another school year and celebrated a major milestone with the grand opening of the school’s new playground. 

A crowd of students, families and community supporters cheered on during September 17th ribbon cutting ceremony, as special guests City of Toronto Councillor Christin Carmichael Greb, TDSB Superintendent Peter Chang and Trustee Jennifer Arp, Vice Principal Mrs. Sarkissian and the Playscape Redevelopment Committee – Marcel Weider, Sherri Glassberg, Kyle Greenspan and Jeremy Jacobs, proudly declared the playground officially open.

It took 2.5 years to bring the Ledbury School Playscape Project to life. Even with a sizeable grant from the TDSB, there was still a shortfall. Thanks to the success of the Playscape Redevelopment Committee’s brick-by-brick campaign, the remaining funds were raised in less than one school year.

Group effort brings splash pad project to fruition

OTTERVILLE, ON - They say it takes a village to raise a child. In Otterville, it took a village to raise funds for a new splash pad, sure to keep local toddlers this summer.

Two years ago, the old wading pool next to the public pool at Otterville Park was unusable and an eyesore. Today, it has been replaced by a fun splash pad with interactive water features, which opened to the public June 20th.

All hands were on deck to raise the $70,000 required to bring the project to fruition. After receiving a Trillium Foundation grant for $30,000, local organizations such as the Otterville Optimist Club, Norwich Township, Friends of Otterville Park and Otterville fire fighters, raised the remaining funds by hosting several successful fundraisers (including the fire fighters’ wing ding event which drew in over 500 people).
