The Centretown Citizens Community Association’s Trees & Greenspace Committee is aware of all the benefits of greenspaces in their many forms. Such benefits include all aspects of health, physical, social, and mental, and are reasons why governments spend a great deal of resources on trees and greenspaces. During the last year, the Centretown Community Health Centre (CCHC) and Dundonald Park were the focus of a study by 8-80 Cities to understand how that park could be better utilized by CCHC to foster its goals for improving health in the community. The report is completed and now is a good time to look at how Dundonald and its two neighbouring parks can support a healthier community.
Bonnie Mabee is chair of the Trees & Greenspace Committee of the Centretown Citizens Community Association. The committee advocates for parks in the Centretown area.
