When you think Parkdale, the image of green space might not be the first one that pops into your mind. It might be something more akin to the guy at the corner of Queen and Lansdowne who wears a fur coat in the summer and tries to sell you cartons of smokes.
But there is something alluring about Parkdale: a place where movers, shakers, artists, and the artfully minded all converge on bistros and patios throughout the warmer months. The folks in the Parkdale BIA have teamed up with the TD Green Streets Project to make the most possible out of the neighbourhood.
The program helps to create jobs for people in Parkdale who might otherwise not have one while keeping the streets beautiful.
Check out the documentary and let us know what you think of Parkdale’s green spaces.
