Over the last year, the Parents of the Students of Presteign Heights Elementary School have been exploring the potential revitalization of the school yard.
The playground has reached the end of its utility, having rotted out in many areas, posing a risk to our most vulnerable residents. While the replacement of our playground is our top priority, it is our vision that the revitalization does not stop here. Our schoolyard represents the largest green space in our neighbourhood. The school yard is the local park for many of us, hosts the East York Soccer Club in the summer, and on a personal note is where my own children, among others, learned to ride their bicycles.
As we enter the planning phase of this project, it is with excitement we ask for your participation. While we are parents, we are also neighbours and members of the Parkview Hill Community Association, and your input is important to us.
Below is a link to an online survey that we have created to help capture your thoughts. Your input is important to us. With your help we would like to create a new space that we can all be proud of. Please take a few moments to complete the survey. With your input we hope to make our Schoolyard, our local park, something for all of us to be proud of.
In the new year, we hope to have the rare opportunity, the type that comes along once in a lifetime, to help re-design our local park, for our children, and for our community.
