Mayor David Miller and Raptor Vince Carter will gather with other officials and

Foundation, which funded the project in the amount of $100,000.

Date: Today -Thursday, November 25, 2004 - rain or shine
Time: 3 p.m.
Place: Wickson Trail Park - foot path entrance to the park is located
off Quantrell Trail.

Driving directions: Take Highway #401 east to Neilson Road, go north past
Sheppard Avenue to Wickson Trail. Turn right on Wickson Trail (first street on
the left) and turn left on Quantrell Trail. Park entrance is on the north side
of the street.

This is the second time Mr. Carter has generously supported Toronto Parks and
Recreation by funding projects that provide sport and recreation opportunities
to the city's children and youth. The first project was the development of a
regulation-size basketball court in the Rexdale community, opened in July 2003.
