Parks of DixonRdTO

What started as a neighbourhood art project has now transformed into a group dedicated to community development and empowerment. Our neighbourhood is fortunate to have an abundance of public green spaces, which act as natural facilities for community-based events.

Integral to our group's foundation is the inclusion of the arts, specifically photography. Parks are a primary source of artistic inspiration to many as they are often the most accessible and safe locations for individuals to enter. We believe that as individuals within our neighbourhood strive to find that "perfect shot", they will gradually expunge negative imagery and replace it with the beauty which surrounds them.
