Urban Forestry has plans this fall to plant native trees and shrubs in natural areas within Home Smith Park. These plantings will infill sites previously planted, and aim to increase the diversity of the forest under story.
Site Location: 4101 Dundas St. West, Ward 5. Access is one-way from the north off Old Dundas Rd.
Councillor Justin Di Ciano is very concerned to hear of the recent inappropriate activity in Fairfield Park. We thank all residents who took the time to let us know all the concerns.
Staff have reported that the current lighting in the park is up to standard. However, there was an issue with the automatic timer which would turn the lights on as it gets dark in the evening. The seniors centre is responsible for the light timers which they have now reset. Next steps are we need to see how the park looks with the lights/timer in operation and if they possibly need to be on longer at night then we can ask staff at the centre to adjust.
A request has also been submitted to review the need for any surveillance cameras.
Councillor Justin Di Ciano is pleased to confirm that we have allocated Section 37 monies to fund a new and much desired drinking fountain. We will confirm the timing for Spring 2018.
Councillor Di Ciano is pleased that his new project is moving ahead so quickly! The Preliminary Schedule is below, dates may change:
Public Meeting October date to be confirmed/2017

Councillor Justin Di Ciano has requested Parks Staff to review the lighting at this park. Once we have the Staff response we will share with you, as always!
City of Toronto Staff tested the water functionality at this park and all mechanical parts and drainage are in working order.
This location is considered a wading pool and not a splash pad, and must be staffed when operational. Therefore, the buttons on this water feature are only functional when there is a Wading Pool Attendant on site – 9:30 am to 4:30 pm daily during the season.
Councillor Justin Di Ciano will host a Community Meeting in the Spring of 2018 to hear what local residents would like to see added to their playground. Feel free to share your thoughts with us.
