Help Plan the Future of High Park

Saturday February 4

The High Park Community Advisory Council is inviting members of the community to join a planning session on the future of High Park.

Here is the HPCAC notice. Note that space may be limited, so please call the contact number listed below.

The park is important to all of us. When issues come up relating to dogs, buildings, traffic, the natural environment, maintenance, and programs, we want to present a clear voice about what’s important. When we think about changes to the park, what values count the most? What principles should guide these changes? And what improvements would you like to see?

Help determine the future by attending a Planning Day on Saturday February 4, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We’ll meet on the second floor of the Howard Park Tennis Club. It’s in the park, just off Parkside Drive, near the first lights south of Keele and Bloor.

We’ll use a facilitated process to guide discussions and come to a consensus on important issues. Your leader will be Mark Ellwood, vice chair of the High Park Community Advisory Council and an experienced facilitator. Lunch and refreshments will be served.

Your opinion counts, so please join us for a lively discussion and a chance to share some ideas with other friends of the park. Let us know if you can attend by emailing: You may get a follow up call from Mark’s assistant, Barbara Lang.

We hope to see you February 4th. If you have questions, feel free to call Mark Ellwood at (416) 762-3453.
