Photo of mural belies the Reality

I enjoyed the article by Linda Carlson called Come and See. The photo of the mural belies the reality. The mural is located behind three malodorous BFI bins and you can’t see the mural in its entirety. Nor do you want to hang around taking in the details considering the olfactory conditions.

Too bad the conditions surrounding the mural are so poor.

Another park for the list

Robert Hawkes’s delightful article touring the several parks in James Bay unfortunately left one out, possible because it is not marked on all city maps. That is Charles Redfern Green on Quebec Street, between Montreal and Pendray. It has shady, mature trees, benches, and recently acquired several community-serving fruit trees, which are kindly tended by the good people at Nourish Kitchen across the street. I’d also note that officially separate from Laurel Point Park is the small enclave of Centennial Park, just to the north of the Friendship Bell. Its stone benches provide sturdy, elevated views of the Inner Harbour while the rest of the Point is undergoing environmental mitigation through 2019.
