Media Advisory: City of Toronto officially reopens James Canning Gardens
Councillor Kyle Rae (Ward 27, Toronto Centre-Rosedale) and representatives from
Toronto Parks and Recreation will officially reopen the James Canning Gardens,
formerly known as the Dundonald Street Parkette.

James Canning was a proud Canadian who had a great love for nature, the arts
and the city of Toronto. He possessed a great sense of humour and called
himself a "dour Scotsman" but, "He loved to argue, tease and banter," as was
stated by Robert Burns, one of his favorite poets.

The parkette has been redesigned with a new patio and seating areas, new plant
material and additional lighting.

The re-opening ceremony will be followed by a reception at Bumpkins Restaurant,
21 Gloucester St.

Date: Saturday, October 18

Time: 2 p.m.

Location: 15 Gloucester St.
(east of Yonge Street, between Dundonald and Gloucester Streets)
