Sweeney Park – Fenced off no longer, a new playground has arrived and the City is working to make it better, see updates!

Sweeney Park 

The Sweeney Park Playground  was fenced off for well over a year and then completely removed without a coordinated plan to replace it.

This was not acceptable, in today’s day and age with the advent of digital distractions like the iPad, Smart Phone, and Video Games we must ensure our Children have fun challenging outdoor recreational opportunities more now than ever!

Don Valley East Collective conducted an investigation into the issue, started a petition that was submitted to Denzil and then organized a community meeting to meet with local elected officials in including the principle of Victor Village Public School.

Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong  is now requesting input, please contact his office, leave comments on this site or send us an email. We will even consider holding another Community Meeting if folks want it.
