The Weston and Mount Dennis areas are (a little more) sparkling after community volunteers took to the parks, alleys, and streets this past weekend as part of a city-wide cleanup.
About 12 people turned up at Elm Park in Weston, and more kids and adults at the park joined in as the day went on, according to Patricia Videla, who organized it. They certainly stayed busy. “Some of the participants headed to the old hospital site to clean while the rest of stayed back at Elm Park. Afterwards, we all headed to Pelmo Park to pick up rubbish.”.
Another group, including volunteers from the WKNC, tackled the area around the BIA, and the indefatigable MDCA will this weekend have the last of its five cleanups at the Eglinton Flats SE entrance.
