We are the friends of The Linear Parks (George Hislop Park, Norman Jewison Park, and James Canning Gardens), a placemaking group for a system of linear parks running just south-east of Yonge and Bloor.
Our purpose is threefold:
- To reimagine and improve The Linear Parks, so they can be a point of community pride.
- To continually activate the parks with activities.
- To provide a voice to advocate for these parks at City Hall, and provide the necessary funding for maintenance and revitalization.
