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 Healey Willan Park,

You helped me realize that parks of any size have tremendous value. As a gathering spot for kids, a natural playground, shade from the sizzling summer sun, a free library, a place to stay hydrated (with the world’s only drinking fountain from NYC’s High Line), stay connected to neighbours, share toys & books, enjoy artwork, appreciate nature, and so much more. Thanks for being the heart of my community.
