Sherry Peters lives on Alpha Avenue and in 2018 organized Cabbagetowner’s efforts for the annual Clean Toronto Together day.
Best place to eat: F’Amelia Restaurant.
Cabbagetown needs: a livelier retail strip on Parliament Street.
Favourite block: Alpha Avenue where I live. It’s only one block long, tucked just below St. James Cemetery. It is so quiet and private even though it’s in the heart of the city.
Best public space: Riverdale Park West and its access to the Don Valley path.
Favourite store: Kendall & Co.
Cabbagetown pet peeve: the amount of garbage left on the streets on recycling pick-up day. It seems to be a result of some of the garbage falling out of over-filled bins and some of it escaping as the garbage men empty the bins into the trucks.
Cabbagetown’s best kept secret: Wellesley Community Centre at 495 Sherbourne Street. I’ve recently discovered its free drop-in badminton program for seniors (60+) on Thursdays at 1 p.m. would highly recommend checking out the Centre for all the programs and facilities available there.
Best reason to join CRA: for easy access to good information about our amazing area.
