Clean-up Berczy Park on June 3rd

27 May

IMG_5920With the rapid arrival of sunshine and warmer days, more people leads to more cigarettes, and more waste around our public parks and spaces.

Join us from 10am to noon on Sunday, June 3rd (clean ups are most effective after a Saturday night!), for our next volunteer-clean up event in Berczy Park.

IMG_5918Friends Of Berczy Park and Toronto Free Walking Tours will provide supplies, gloves and water, but feel free to bring your own favourite work gloves, broom or garden tools, as well as wardrobe for the weather, a hat and sunblock. We hope to see many faces both old and new join this event!

ps: Thanks to our neighbour, GWL Realty Advisors (property mgrs of 33 Yonge), for sending a cleaning crew in advance to help keep the Scott St/Berczy Park boundary clean!



“Ask the pet trainer” at Pet-lovers Day, June 9th

2 May


Due to popular demand, Friends of Berczy Park is hosting another Pet-lovers Day in Berczy Park on Saturday June 9th, from 9am to noon (rain date: Sunday June 10th, 9am to noon).
Stop by the mural garden behind the Flatiron Building for free pet treats, complimentary coffee, and meet your furry and human neighbours, starting at 9am.

Pet-owners got lots of great training advice at our 2017 event!

From 10am to noon,
meet our professional pet trainer, Sydney, from Fresh Puppy and “Ask the Pet Trainer” a question during this free activity. It’s a great chance to ask our expert for puppy training tips, teach Rex a new trick, or address a pet issue like jumping, barking, recall or other behavioural issues you may face. Even if you are just thinking of getting a puppy, stop by, since Sydney has lots of great advice for future pup parents.

By the way: Got old pet toys, clothes or supplies you don’t need? Bring them to our event and we’ll donate them to Project Jessie, a rescue and adoption program run by the


Bring your used or un-needed pet supplies for Project Jessie rescue shelter.

Animal Alliance of Canada.

Special thanks to our event sponsors PetValu, 184 Front St East and Tim Hortons at 33 Yonge St and 55 Front St E.
