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.
