The Keelesdale Park Intergenerational Fence Project

May 15, 2012

Eglinton Hill Centre seniors (St. Clair West Services for Seniors), University of Toronto students, the Learning Enrichment Foundation, and the TTC Crosstown Community Liaison Team partnered on this photo project to brighten construction fencing in Keelesdale Park.

Students and seniors hit the streets together to capture images based on the theme “Community Is…”. The group then selected and edited the photos for display on the fencing, which is protecting mature trees inside the park during construction for the Eglinton-Crosstown. This is one small example of celebrating local participation as we work together to deliver rapid transit for Toronto.
