All of the entries will be posted around Valentine’s Day. Here’s one to inspire you. Post a love letter to your park by going here. Read other love letters on our blog.

 


 

Dear Purple Park,

It’s 22 below as I cross you, Purple Park. The sparkling lake below, steam rising, hints of warmth and possibility. The sandbox brimming with brightly coloured toys awaits the return of eager children. MMM’s gift to us, a ping pong table, paddles stored below ready for the first friendly competition of spring.

But why wait?

Just beyond on the beach we welcome the first two of many winter stations — public art installations that will draw the city to our special place this winter.

It doesn’t get better than this.

Love, Julia
