Let Local Groups Manage Their Own Parks

The February 7, 2009 Globe and Mail article by John Barber discusses the success of community management of the Dufferin Grove park and the benefits of having communities lead the development of their neighbourhoods.

“If nothing else, such a scheme would help re-establish the human connections that have so withered in the new century. ‘You can’t de-amalgamate the city, but you can decentralize it,’ Mr. Vaughan says.”

The article is well worth a read with thoughts to improving our own park in Seaton Village, Vermont Square.
