Friends of Silver Creek School agree with Mayor John Tory. “The people of Toronto love their parks,” Tory said. “The parks give us breathing room in our lives. They’re places to meet friends, to play with our kids, to have events, to sit back and simply enjoy the out of doors.”... “We’ve allowed a lot of development to take place without taking a step like this, and it’s time to move forward,” Tory said. Richmond Gardens already has a great park let's make sure no sale or development takes places to destroy any of the green space and help perserve the TDSB owned parkland at Silver Creek.
