Sunshine and smiles!

Lescon Park

Not sure if it’s because Spring has finally sprung, or it’s just the warmth and sunshine, but I have noticed a definite difference in our little community.

Best example I have was riding TTC buses three times yesterday.  Each and every time, the bus driver made eye contact with me, smiled and greeted me, what a pleasant experience.

The bus routes in our community are not as overrun as others, for example the Leslie 51. I use the route as an example because I’d like to recognize a job well done.  Yesterday, it touched my heart to see a driver wishing a kid (who is obviously a regular rider) a great day at school.  And, I appreciated the fact that the driver provided copies of Metro newspapers for his riders. I say, let’s keep the mojo flowing and share smiles everyday.

On a more personal note, the family and I had wonderful adventures at the newly constructed (late fall 2011) Lescon Park this past weekend.  If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, it’s two parks for the price of one!  The new construction has see-saws, a climbing wall and hours of fun.  Parents can get engaged with the kids, or enjoy the park facing benches along the edge of the play structures.

Just up the hill and closer to Lescon Public School is an older play structure that is designed with older children in mind – 6 – 8 years of age would be my best guess.  There are swinging tires, plenty of monkey bars, slides and a tire bridge.

Don’t forget to bring the dog – there is a great expanse of green space for running and playing.  The path will connect you all the way to Dallington Park, which is almost at Sheppard.  Everyone can play outside together and be safe.

Welcome

Have you ever had a love affair with a city? This is a project that got started with passion and love for a community that I have lived in for most of my life, our home, North York.

My name is Michelle, and I am the founder of Warmest Welcome.

As a long-time resident, I wish I knew more of my neighbours and I longed for information about events and places I could do to connect with people.

This site is the result of my dream to build a stronger feeling of community and to encourage us all to use our parks, community centres, libraries, and support our local businesses.
My feeling is that by investing in what is around us, we all get to know each other and feel more like a tight knit community!

The site will provide you with 3 things:
1. relevant community information,
2. access to a blog where I share my experiences in the community with you,
3. a place to sign up for the newsletter that will provide you a monthly snap shot of free activities in our neighbourhood.

Enjoy!
Michelle
