Help keep Berczy Park beautiful!

Toronto Free Walking Tours team beautified Berczy on July 22nd.

Want to keep Berczy Park beautiful? Stop by our Berczy Park Clean-up event this Saturday August 5, 10am-noon, and spend a bit of time helping us tidy up the park.  You’ll be amazed what a difference we can make in 30 minutes, an hour, or so!

What to bring? Just bring yourself, but please email us your RSVP if you are likely coming, so we can bring enough supplies, at berczypark@gmail.com . *If you can, do bring some clean-up gloves, a broom, dustpan or garden trowel, and remember any personal care items you might need, like sunblock or water.

IMG_3636This event is inspired by the folks at Toronto Free Walking Tours, who led the first successful clean-up event on July 22nd, when they saw that our new park could use a bit of TLC. Now, Friends of Berczy Park and Toronto Free Walking Tours are working together to host these community clean-ups as needed, to help keep Berczy beautiful.

Can’t make it this time? No problem, but help us help beautify Berczy whenever you can. For example, each time you visit Berczy, pick up one piece of litter, or report poor park conditions to 3-11. Thanks!

    Sorry to be sending another email – is it possible for me to send notes to the city itself and if so do you have an email address?

    Just wanted to ask if the city knows that a number of lights in the fountain are not working?

    I am only reporting it because not sure the city parks people would be aware of it as it is only evident at night and they are not around then 🙂

      Hi Norma, no problem at all. Thanks for noticing the fountain lights outage. We’d suggest two things: send an email to Mark.Emslie@toronto.ca , the parks supervisor for downtown parks, and cc. us at BerczyPark@gmail.com. You can also simply call 3-11 and tell them bout the issue to ensure this maintenance request gets logged. thanks
