Cabbagetown According To… Tina Card

Tina Card
This month, we have Cabbagetown Residents Association board director Tina Card providing her views on Cabbagetown.

Best place in Cabbagetown for a bite to eat…
Salt & Tobacco. Delicious pizza and wine!

Cabbagetown needs…
More sit out, people-watching patios on Parliament Street.

Favourite block…
Geneva Avenue.

Best public space…
Riverdale Farm Park – it’s so gorgeous with the big trees and beautiful Victorian homes surrounding it.

Favourite store…
Home Hardware on Parliament Street. They always have everything you need for your home, plus the personnel are always friendly and knowledgeable.

Cabbagetown pet peeve…
My pet peeve is that I never feel the need to leave Cabbagetown! Seriously, I moved to Toronto to enjoy everything a big city has to offer but I find myself so content in this beautiful neighborhood that I rarely get in my car to explore the city. Oh yes, also the dog-owners who do not follow the on-leash rules in the parks.

Cabbagetown’s best kept secret…
The amazing community vibe in Cabbagetown is it’s best kept secret. It has all the great elements of a small town, where you know your neighbours and care about them, yet it is in the middle of a big city. Plus the Book Bank on Gerrard Street is a hidden gem of a place to spend time with the little ones.

Best reason to join the Cabbagetown Residents Association (CRA)…
By joining the CRA you will support the on-going efforts that are being made to keep the great things that characterize our community, and help in those areas that need to be improved. The bottom-line is that the work of the CRA has a direct impact on your quality of life here in Cabbagetown.

Am so with you about the unleashed dogs in Riverdale west park. Owners are hostile when confronted. Small children are at risk especially when dogs are chasing balls or squirrels. Has anyone ever seen bylaw enforcement officers there?

Better signage at entrances to upper park would help elieviate the problem. Present dog ruling signs are out of sightlines and too complicated. A simple sign saying dogs on leash or owner fined $250. would do the trick.

and whats with preople bringing dogs inside Shoppers Drugstore ???
