We need your help! The Parkdale Resident Association (PRA) is conducting a survey of the City’s proposed development of properties at Queen St. West and Cowan Ave. (Library, Community Centre, Park, 1313 and parking lot). We are asking our PRA neighbours (YOU) for their input to help us together (re)-imagine what is the future potential of this site.
Click HERE to fill out the survey…thank you for participating.
We encourage you to give back to the community in any way that you can – whether it is donating non perishable goods, volunteering in the community, or doing a good deed.
Here are just two suggestions of local groups doing good things: Parkdale Neighbourhood Land Trust and Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre.
The Executive from your Parkdale Residents Association wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season.

The Parkdale Free School is proud to host a troubleshooting workshop by Repair Café Toronto:
Have you ever wondered why your toaster or DVD player just stopped working? Don’t know where to begin? Come to this free troubleshooting workshop and learn some simple steps to solving the mystery of broken stuff. Troubleshooting is a method for determining what caused your electrical or electronic equipment (or almost anything) to break.
This workshop will go through the logical process step by step. Bring a broken home appliance or some broken home electronic equipment to practice the troubleshooting method. If you can’t fix it then and there you will know why it isn’t working and if it can be fixed.

Parkdale Residents Association (PRA) wants your feedback.
The PRA is conducting a brief, informal survey on movement around Parkdale. We would like to hear from you to know how you move within the boundaries of our neighbourhood and how safe you feel. Depending on the responses, the survey may lead to the formation of a Working Group that will tackle issues of safety for vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists, mobility users, rollerbladers, skateboarders, e-bikes) in Parkdale.
Please share with anyone that lives or spends time in Parkdale. The survey is open until October 6th.
Take the SURVEY…we’ll publish the results shortly.
Greenest City hosts this event with Indigenous art and music; local performances and workshops in dance, poetry, storytelling; short film screening and a potluck dinner at Milky Way Garden starting 6 pm. Free.
Date: Saturday, September 29th, 2018
Time: 2:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

With the reduction in size of Toronto’s city council, our ward boundaries have been redrawn. We are now in Ward 4, Parkdale-HighPark (details HERE).
It is more important than ever to learn about what is going on in your community, so please join us at the PRA’s up-coming Municipal All-Candidates’ Meeting to hear from and ask questions of the candidates running for city council in our ward. Stay tuned!
Since 2005 your neighbours have been building a better community through their work for the Parkdale Residents Association. Help carry on the tradition! There is interesting work to be done and YOU can help.
