Light In Sight

Any business owner and resident in the Roncesvalles neighbourhood has been put to the challenge over the last year.  We got hit with a recession along with everyone else but then we underwent phase 1 of construction. (Hawk Eyes view from last May).

With the worst part behind us and another summer of road works ahead, we are all thinking positively towards the future.  Despite the noise and aggravation that lies ahead, I am personally looking forward to the new and improved street scape of Roncesvalles.

I am waiting in anticipation for expanded sidewalks, new grade level trees, more public areas and a new fleet of Bombardier streetcars.

I just wanted to personally thank all the contributors from Toronto Life for featuring their Favourite Destinations along Roncesvalles.  We are all appreciative of the support and the acknowledgment.

A special thanks from Hawk Eyes. It's truly lovely to be noticed and mentioned.  It makes it all worth while.

The street is back to normal for the time being and 3 hours of parking is FREE until November.  Come on down and take advantage!

Sakura Hanami

On the West side this is a very special time of year.  Late April to early May is the blooming of High Park's Sakura trees.  For centuries, neighbours, visitors and appreciators alike have joined in the Japanese Tradition of Sakura Hanami, the "Cherry Blossom Flower Viewing".

It is truly spectacular and not to be missed.  If you're heading over this way, here are some tips. Take Cherry Hill down from the West Road to Grenadier Pond and don't forget your camera.  Riding your bike is the best option but if you plan on driving, don't get caught parking in the wrong spot.  It could be an expensive day at the park.

Park for FREE on Roncesvalles.  City Councillor, Gord Perks had our meters removed and parking is now complimentary up to 3 hours, until November!  Grab yourself an ice cream at Film Buff or a coffee at Cherry Bomb, stop into Frock for some spring digs and be sure to pop your head in to see what new treasures I have found for you at Hawk Eyes.
Enjoy the day and the beauty in the park.
