As a member of the Forest Hill Village BIA, you are invited to attend the 2019 Annual General Meeting:
The first season of the on-street parklet, our newest public space in the Village, was a great success and we're so thrilled with all the positive feedback from community members. Located in the heart of the neighbourhood, just north of Lonsdale on the east side of Spadina, this parklet quickly became a hub of activity and a regular destination for locals.
While this exciting public space enhancement project may have been set back by a year due to the prohibitive cost associated with the original custom design, our new seasonal parklet is now in place on Spadina Rd. in the heart of Forest Hill Village!
Following a well received series of concert in the park events last year, the BIA will again be hosting free live acoustic musical performances at the small public stage in Suydam Park - Spadina Rd. at Coulson Ave.
It may have taken longer than we'd have liked, but all three pieces of street furniture that were destroyed back in January by a sidewalk snowplow have been replaced with new items that are safe and ready to use.
Thanks for your patience!
Less than 6 months after our brand new benches, chairs and planters were finally installed throughout the village, several pieces of street furniture were damaged beyond repair by a careless sidewalk snowplow operator.
A claims process has begun to receive compensation to cover the damage - two benches will need to be replaced and one planter repaired by replacing one half section (near Green P lot). Unfortunately, these things take much longer than we'd like.
Thank you for your patience in the meantime.
Our final free concert of the season takes place on Saturday September 29th from 1 to 3pm at the stage area in Suydam Park (Spadina Rd. at Coulson Ave.) and will feature local musicians Tamar Ilana, Demetri Petsalakis, and Haghmeh Farahmand. Grab a snack and a coffee in the Village and join us in the park. Not to be missed! (Weather permitting)
