To: Mayor Rob Rod,
City of Toronto
We, the undersigned, petition the City of Toronto to install and maintain fencing for the perimeter of the David Combie Park, located at 131-171 The Esplanade.
This is a multiple use park. It is an off leash park, baseball diamond, and soccer field. The common equipment used in all the of the uses of the park is BALLS. Balls are used for both games and a form of exercise for the dogs. The issue is safety for all. Traffic has increased with the growth of our community and when balls happen to go outside of the park, for many reasons, it would be safer for all if there was a fence in place to either stop the ball or stop the person or dog from ending up in the traffic from chasing after a ball. Children have dated into traffic chasing after balls. Dogs have darted out and gotten hit by cars. Our park is becoming stronger with more use within our community, therefore we want it to be as safe as possible without disturbing the multiple uses of the park.
