Help our volunteers paint new seating on May 18.

Although cool temperatures masked the arrival of spring, things are warming up in Berczy Park:

1) Popular café tables & chairs return! FOBP will soon re-install our popular café-style tables & chairs around the fountain, thanks to a generous donation by Allied Properties REIT, a leading owner and developer of office properties adjacent to Berczy Park and across Canada.

With these funds, we will install more ‘electric green’ table & chair sets and decorative planters, following last fall’s pilot project, on Saturday May 18 from 9 am to noon (Email us at if you’d like to pitch-in on our volunteer painting crew.)

Thanks again to Allied Properties REIT. Please  support businesses in their premises at 36-40 Wellington St E., 35-39, 41- 45 & 49 Front St E., such as Winners and restaurants Trevor, Swish, Bravi and Berber.

2) City issues RFP for Berczy renovation: The City published its Request for Proposal (RFP)  to professional, technical and architectural firms to support the upcoming revitalization of Berczy. See our Dec. 13 blog update below for details on those plans. You can view the full RFP on the City website:
