Weston Family Parks Challenge
The Weston Family Parks Challenge is supporting the Aptus Treatment Centre’s Aptus Teaching Landscape. This enhanced learning green space is a nature-focused educational environment and activity hub for students with complex disabilities and the greater Toronto community. School ground improvements, including a fruit orchard, edible garden and mini-arboretum, will complement the City’s recreational improvements to an adjacent park. Education and stewardship opportunities engage students and local residents in environmental programs. This project demonstrates how public, private and non-profit partners can work together to place parks at the heart of communities.
