The Dundas Roncesvalles Peace Garden group has launched a website to promote its proposal for a new peace garden at Roncesvalles and Dundas. The garden would green and beautify the triangular space at Dundas and Roncesvalles, and commemorate the area’s role in the War of 1812 and the resistance of local aboriginal warriors to the landing of the American fleet in Humber Bay. The website includes project information and updates, as well as a newsletter sign-up, donation form, and other resources.
The DRPG group is an organization of local residents, formed as a committee of the Roncesvalles-Macdonnel Residents’ Association, in partnership with the Roncesvalles Village BIA and the City of Toronto. Other community partners include the Roncesvalles Village Historical Society, Roncesvalles Renewed, and the Horticultural Societies of Parkdale & Toronto.
