SAVE YOUR PARK!
For Ways You Can Help See the Bottom of This Page
A NORTH END COMMUNITY PARK IS FOR SALE!
The Sunset Cultural Garden, at the corner of Bay Street North and Strachan Street West across the road from the entrance to Bayfront Park, is nestled within Simcoe Tot Lot and is a designated City of Hamilton Park. This pollinator garden and quiet sitting spot is now being threatened by the prospect of being sold to a developer.
Concerned area residents are working to save Simcoe Tot Lot (where the Sunset Cultural Garden is located) to not ONLY preserve the Sunset Cultural Garden but, importantly, to stand firm on the principle that selling city parks should never be on the table when the city is looking for cash. City politicians and developers need to know this. Parks, even small green spaces like this one, are extremely important to the environment and to the health and well-being of residents.
Want to help us? Get a lawn sign and let your councillor, family, friends, and business colleagues know that our city parks are not for sale.

WAYS YOU CAN HELP
GET A LAWN SIGN
We have purchased lawn signs to raise awareness about the sale of the park. If you would like to have one on your lawn we will provide you one for free so that we can send a collective message to the City that we don't support the sale of community parks.
Please include "I want a sign" along with your address in your email and we will have one delivered to you.
CONTACT OUR COUNCILLOR
Click the button below to email Jason Farr, Councillor for Ward 2, who has been central to the effort to sell the park for development. If you live in another part of Hamilton we encourage you to reach out to your own Councillor to let them know how you feel about parks being sold in our city.
