There are more than half a dozen proposed large-scale residential developments in Ainslie Wood and Westdale, at various stages of planning and approval. We are working to keep track of the proposals and their status with City Hall so that AWWCA members and other neighbours know what’s being proposed and planned. We welcome any additions or updates.
The Royal Botanical Gardens are looking for ca. 1,300 Christmas trees to construct a rampart to help block the flow of pollution into the marsh.
The RBG is looking for an additional 1,500 trees for extending the Grindstone Creek barrier, which helps to control carp.
Trees can be dropped off until Tuesday, January 13 at Princess Point for the Chedoke Creek barrier or at Valley Inn Road just off Spring Gardens Road for the Grindstone Creek barrier. Signs will be posted at each site about details.

$200,000 has been allocated by the City for an art installation in Churchill Park (between the Aviary and Ravine Road). Six submissions were short-listed from 44 submissions by a citizen jury and now the City is accepting comments from the general public until April 7th ahead of the final selection.
You can submit your comments via an on-line survey (link below) or via email to Jen Anisef. Descriptions of the project are available in the survey and at the Westdale Library.
