Annual Thomas Foster Picnic Provides Memorable Afternoon for Toronto's Children
Thomas Foster's dream of Toronto's children sharing an afternoon of fun in the
park continues on Saturday, September 12 with the 53rd annual Thomas Foster
Picnic at Bickford Park from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m.

Fun will be the order of the day as pony rides, clowns, races, games and prizes
entertain children from ages 5 to 12. The event, which is free of charge, is
organized by Canada Trust, Trustees of the Estate of Thomas Foster and the City
of Toronto's Parks and Recreation Division on one of the few remaining
Saturdays in the summer to take the children outside for fun and excitement.

A former Mayor of the City of Toronto, Thomas Foster was always interested in
the activities of the community. His estate directed that a Saturday afternoon
be set aside each year in order that the children of Toronto could enjoy a day
of fun in the park.

Bickford Park is located at the corner of Christie Street and Bloor Street. For
more information about the event, contact Lori Robinson (Canada Trust) at (416)
869-6207or the City of Toronto's Parks and Recreation Facilities Use Section at
(416) 392-7291.
