This exercise is to get people touring their streets in person, or digitally, to find more information about the green ways and spaces near them.
How to participate:
- Take a look to learn where greenways and parks you visit align with Native American lands. You can look up the history of the land here: https://native-land.ca/territory-acknowledgement/
- Take the T to any of your favorite green spaces such as the Arboretum, the Northern Strand, or the Esplanade.
- Send in photos of green spaces undergoing fall foliage.
- Count the number of benches or seating areas at the next green space you visit and send them to us.
- Visit the Emerald Necklace and find the “floating fish”.
- Take a walk by or around a body of water (e.g. Jamaica Pond, the Espalande, Harborwalk, etc.)
- Don’t feel like going outside? Tour YOUR Street or favorite greenway via google maps!
- Take a screenshot of an improvement you’d like to be made, or of a design that you really love.
- Research and find three landscape architects from another country and tweet about their work.
- Share a photo of you exploring a greenway from 2019, or beyond!
- When’s the last time you roller bladed along a greenway? Tell us where, when, and how it felt?
- Took a long walk? Where’s your favorite place to cool down after touring your streets?
- Isn’t it hard to believe many of the parks and greenways we have may not have existed before? Look up the history of a park or greenway near you!
