Get Our Box Grove Parks

This petition made change with 136 supporters!

We, the residents of Box Grove and Legacy, kindly petition you to intervene in the development of two Markham local community parks, Rizal Park and Box Grove Community Park:

1) We have been patiently waiting for these parks for a decade and are extremely disappointed that very little has been done with respect to either park, reflecting a history of failed promises and expectations by our officials, whose starved communication with us has been completely unacceptable.

2) The delay in developing these parks has strained the adjacent Legacy Park which is supporting a community many times what it was designed for. The wear and tear at Legacy Park does not reflect its relatively young age and is obvious to all.

3) We are also disappointed by the City's uncompromising insistence that a permitted soccer field will (at some unknown date in the future) be developed at Box Grove Community Park. This will inevitably mean that people from across the GTA will book the field months in advance, thereby preventing the local community from using it. And the presence of people from outside our community will inevitably increase traffic and waste in our community. We do not want a permitted soccer field.
