Media Advisory: Flemingdon Park turns 40
  
Flemingdon Park is 40 years old and all local residents, former and current,
are invited to a free public birthday party this Saturday.

Date: Saturday, October 13

Time: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Place: 150 Grenoble Dr. (Flemingdon Community Centre and Playground)

Celebrate this unique neighbourhood's 40th anniversary with food, the island
sounds of steel band the Panatics, and the urban rush of the band GCP. For
children, a bouncing castle and other attractions will highlight this free
event.

One special guest is Macklin Hancock, renowned landscape architect and city
planner who was the "father" of the Flemingdon Park planned community.

City Councillor Jane Pitfield, Toronto Police Services 54 Division and
ProAction have worked with City Parks and Recreation, area schools and local
community organizations to make this event possible. The National Film Board of
Canada will be on site filming the festivities for a documentary being produced
about Flemingdon Park.

Flemingdon Park is a multi-residential community, built atop valley green space
in the Don Mills corridor south of Eglinton Avenue. Flemingdon Park is home to
Gateway Public School, Grenoble Public School and John XXIII Catholic School,
with thriving parks and fun recreation programs.
