Park People decided to help Toronto celebrate Valentine’s Day in an unconventional way. We’re inviting people to write love letters to their park. 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 Wellesley Park,
Hidden away, tucked behind a much larger, more visited park just nearby, you are oft-forgotten, Wellesley Park, by those who do not venture your way. But for those of us in the neighborhood, those of us who look for the peace and solace amongst your expanses of green and shady trees, you are, and can not be, forgotten. You are the place where we stroll, where we sit, where we find joy in the company of our friends and loved ones; you are a place for escape when life gets too hectic, and a place for contemplation when the world gets too loud. You are a place where we can be who we want to be, and remind ourselves that there is room for serenity in a city that never seems to stop buzzing. You, Wellesley Park, are a park that I love, and that I will return to again and again.
See you soon,
