From Protest-drab, to central-park chic, St. James has been transformed over the past 48 hours by a fleet of volunteers from Landscape Ontario and the Ontario Sod Growers Association. You may recall that St.James Park was home to the Occupy Toronto group for 5 weeks which trampled the gardens and lawn, leaving behind a muddy-mess.
With $60,000, over 100 volunteers (+35 Toronto Staff) and 11, 000 square feet of sod, St.James park has never looked more beautiful! As a resident of a condo overlooking this park, I created a short time-lapse video that shows the transformation of St.James Park as OccupyTO grew and the leaves fell throughout November. Check it out!
Thank you volunteers for revitalizing this important city green space!
