Normally, my mailbox gets crammed with unwanted ads and flyers, but yesterday I was pleased to dig out a tiny photocopied page from The Annex Residents' Association. There is small park right at Kendal/Wells St., south of Dupont, north of Bloor called Sibelius Park. The ARA have lovingly included the Annex residents to have a say in what should happen to this park... does it need more shrubs? Benches? Plants? Dog space?
These quaint, local parks are great spots to meet your hoodmates, and really find out who lives beyond your bike shed. I love being included in possibly bettering my living space, and apparently, so do a lot of other Annex residents! There are several other Annex-loving websites/ newspapers that talk about what is going down in our hood, including www.bloorannex.com (this site could use some botox and a face-peel, if you catch my drift) and Inside Toronto's Annex Guardian. The Guardian is great for linking to what is currently going on in the hood, as well as in our city.
Don't forget about our trusty paper sources: Voice of the Annex, and The Annex Gleaner. Anymore I should know about? I can't wait for the summertime church rummage sales, garage sales, and street parties but for now, I'll focus on Sibelius... Community gardening, anyone?
