Youth-developed initiative in Dorset Park
Youth living in the Dorset Park community have created a safe space for their peers to gather and play with today's opening of the McGregor Park Diverse Sports Pad. The new area provides opportunities for recreation and performance for young people living in the Dorset Park Priority Neighbourhood for Investment. It includes space for basketball and handball, as well as a covered gathering area and a stage.
"Today, we're celebrating the efforts of Dorset Park's young people who are strengthening their neighbourhood and building a better future for their community," said United Way Toronto President Frances Lankin. "This youth-led initiative was supported by a unique partnership involving United Way Toronto, the Youth Challenge Fund, the City of Toronto and the Dorset Park Youth Advisory Council who came together in support of the Youth Council's vision for a safer community."
