Amazing Moss Park painted by John G. Howard, 1827 depicting two hikers on Queen St pointing to the William Allan mansion. Later occupied by his son, George William Allan 1853 who was a politician but also President of the Ontario Society of Artists and the Conservatory of Music.
We are residents, neighbours, business owners, and friends of the neighbourhood who believe that the heritage of Moss Park should have a bearing on how we respect and use the park & neighbourhood today--a place of enjoyment and beauty for people of all ages and backgrounds.

With the rapid growth of the city- just look at our skylines. The things we value the most like neighbourhoods and public safety are disappearing. I grew up in the downtown, and I admit I have to prepare a certain mindset in stepping outside my door.
I carry a barrage of homemade first aid items like tampons because in emergency first aid they can be used as a quickie first aid, not very effective but it gives me abit more than the clothes off my back to be used.
With the increase of random attacks and drug use on our streets, and a lack of timely answers and solutions, affecting our homes, businesses and personal safety I am launching our Moss Park association to have a stronger voice.
WE NEED ACTION- I do not want to read on the news another 2-3 random knife or gun shootings!
In the past I have had initiated Neighbourhood Watch in Riverdale, traveled to war zones on humanitarian aid projects, sat on Police Liaison Community, worked in lock up psychiatric forensic wards but never in my life have I experienced such crazy mayhem in Toronto streets.
WE ARE STRONGER AS A GROUP WITH ONE VOICE FOR POSITIVE CHANGE
As, part of the Ontario Line there will be a station located in Moss Park alongside the north side of Queen St East.
