On my many walks through Quaker Hill, I see green spaces such as Sandford Parkette that could be better utilized by residents of all ages, but sadly, they sit vacant. The neighbourhood of Quaker Hill in Ward 5 deserves greater recreation investment with enhanced playground equipment and amenities such as park benches, picnic tables, etc. As your Ward 5 Councillor, I want to hear from you on how we can improve this parkette to ensure it is enjoyed by all residents.
The removal of Quaker Pool has left a recreational void that should be filled. I will work with the community to ensure that this area or another appropriate space is identified to bring a community splash pad to our Ward. Other Wards in Newmarket have them and Quaker Hill should also see a comparable level of recreation investment.
As your Ward 5 Councillor, I will advocate on your behalf to replace outdated playground equipment or enhance it. We must invest in our children who are our future and our legacy.
