We have been without College Park for about a year now.

I am staggered that it takes Toronto two and a half years to re-make a park.

Prior to the closure we had some Grassy areas, and some Muddy areas.

But we had a place we could walk through instead of being forced to walk along the busy peak-hour streets of Gerrard, Bay, and Yonge.

Three Construction Seasons to skim off the topsoil and spread new stuff over the old space? Ok, put in a few planters, put in some new trees because the old ones were growing above the two-storey limit, . But three construction seasons?


I am lagging behind in my writing.

This Laneway runs between Cumberland and Yorkville, and is the last leg on my northward walk towards Yorkville Public Library.

We have had Condominium Construction going on for a year now, and back on May 27th I noticed just how much the surface had cracked towards the Multi-Story Pit that will soon be a towering condominium.

Hmmm, I thought. I wonder how dangerous this is?

Then on June 1st I entered the laneway from the southern end and found a construction crew at work. It might be interesting to see how you stop a laneway sliding into a pit
