Councillor Josh Matlow

MacPherson Avenue “Ecopark”

Since taking office, I have been working with community members on an exciting proposal to transform the hydro corridor on Macpherson Avenue (between Spadina and Davenport) from a derelict eyesore into a usable public space. I was happy to support a local resident’s application for a City of Toronto grant to build a demonstration “Ecopark” with solar panels, community gardens, native plants and an electric car.


This is an opportunity for the City to demonstrate its commitment to renewable energy, environmental stewardship and innovative public spaces. The new green space will also provide an educational experience for local schoolchildren from the Waldorf School, Huron Public School and Cottingham Public School.
