Are there sports programs you’ve tried to find for your kids that just aren’t available at Swansea, Annette, or Keele Community Centres? Are those programs only available a drive away at other Parks and Recreation facilities in other neighbourhoods?
Bloor West resident Andrew Mahoney says “yes” to both questions, and is looking for local parents who are similarly frustrated, because he’s been told that the programs would be offered if the demand were there.
Mahoney has taken the issue up with Parks and Rec managers and with Ward 13 Councillor Bill Saundercook, who are offering to meet with parents from the area to discuss what sports programs they would like to see offered in our neighbourhood.
Andrew Mahoney asks that you contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will be meeting with City staff March 8th. Please share your views here, as well (click Comments below to add your thoughts) .
Parks and Recreation Manger Mike McCluskey told the BWVRA that they will start planning for the Fall programs shortly, and are happy to hear from local residents. He concedes there may be some “gaps” in program offerings, but notes that our area is limited because all three Rec Centers are shared with the shools they adjoin.
