IN FOCUS

DANS LA MIRE


This spring, six of Toronto’s school playgrounds will become greener spaces, thanks to a partnership between PortsToronto and Evergreen Canada. From ripping out asphalt and planting trees to building an interactive water wall, these schools will receive funding, staff and the necessary expertise to bring nature to the playground.
 
Many of the schools chosen this year are located in high-traffic neighbourhoods in the downtown core where there is a limited ability to connect with nature due to a lack of greenspace. Through this program, students get their hands dirty with a first-hand experience interacting with native plants, vegetable gardens, and a water wall that will teach children about the properties of water.
 
The schools that will receive funding to create greener playground spaces this spring are Bruce Junior Public School, St. Paul Catholic School, Holy Family Catholic School, St. Mary Catholic School, The Waterfront School, and Toronto Island Public & Natural Science School. After extensive consultation with Evergreen, each school’s green playground will be tailored to meet its specific needs and priorities.
 
PortsToronto places great importance on being an active participant and strong supporter of the community it operates in, and is thrilled to be able to leverage both financial and human resources to help these schools bring nature to their playgrounds. PortsToronto is committed to fostering strong, healthy and sustainable communities and has invested more than $6.7 million since 2009 in charitable initiatives and environmental programs that benefit communities along Toronto's waterfront and beyond.
