High Park Playground Made Right

Mike Holmes made it right and the #Toronto High Park playground was rebuilt after vandals destroyed large portions of the wooden castles by arson. The Jamie Bell Adventure Playground rebuild was planned with the famous construction expert, City of Toronto Councillor Sarah Doucette and Landscape Architect Janet Rosenburg in may of 2012 and the project was filmed later in July for an episode of Mike's HOLMES Makes it Right.
He left his mark with a plaque on a large rock which also had a sword sticking out of it. I could not remove Excalibur and was not able to become King of the playground.
The community built it the first time and they helped rebuild it this time with the help of corporate donors like Canadian Tire. "Canadian Tire is pledging up to $50,000 to fund the rebuilding of the Jamie Bell Adventure Park - a large wooden castle and play area that was originally built by volunteers in 1998. Additionally, Canadian Tire will work with the City of Toronto and area volunteers to host a community event in High Park. This will be an opportunity for Canadian Tire volunteers and local families interested in helping with the rebuild to contribute. Local Canadian Tire stores and Dealers are also supporting the reconstruction of the facility."
