OTHER GROUPS' EVENTS
PROTECTING WILDLIFE AND PETS
Letting your dog off leash in non-designated areas can pose serious risks to their health. Read more
HELP PROTECT HIGH PARK
If you see any behaviour infractions, dead animals or other problems in the park, call 311. At the very least, your concern will be logged. Large numbers of calls on particular issues can make a difference.
SKATING ON GRENADIER POND
(and other bylaw enforcement issues)
Protecting the natural areas and wildlife in High Park is a challenge already but if people are to get used to the idea that they can do away with the "unpopular bylaws" as opposed to understanding which of these laws are actually "good" and accepting the reason for their existence, the situation will become even more difficult.
