About us: Hello! We are the Friends of Cedarbrook Park and Thomson Memorial Park. Welcome to our website! We use this website to post general and historical information about our Friends’ group. For recent and upcoming activities and events, check our Facebook page.

As a local community group, our purpose is to promote the appreciation and appropriate use of the wonderful parks in our community, to advocate for improvements, and to support their natural beauty and environment.

All are welcome to attend our meetings and events. Join us and you can volunteer your time and energy as you are able. Meet neighbours and make some new friends, too. Anything and everything you contribute will go towards making our parks and our community a better place to live!

More details about the TD Park People grant and our events at: https://friendsctmparks.wordpress.com/td-park-people-grants/ We work with Toronto Park People:

“Park People is the catalyst for better parks across Toronto. Our parks are not as good as they should be and we know that when residents get involved, parks get better. That’s why we are working with nearly 100 park friends groups, city workers and other partners to plant more trees and gardens, fix broken infrastructure and get more people out celebrating their communities through parks.” http://www.parkpeople.ca
