King Park is one of best in Canada

 Photos by Barry Wallace
Tasca Community Park, on Parkheights Trail in northeast Nobleton, has a new claim to fame.   The park has already been named the winner of Parks & Recreation Ontario's PRO Award of Excellence, for design for a community under 30,000.   Now, a group of playground writers has created a list of the top 150 playgrounds in Canada, to celebrate Canada's 150 birthday.   Tasca Park has made that list.   The park has lots of wide open spaces plus numerous interactive features, like the splash pad and full-size basketball court, pictured here.

Last Raspberry Social at Laskay location

Tuesday's sellout crowd a perennial feature

Longtime ticketmaster ~ 'Amiable' Al Henderson

Perfect combination: fresh raspberries, raspberry pie, ice cream
The Laskay Raspberry Social will be held next year in the Laskay Hall after it is transported to its new location in Kinghorn, at the King Historial & Cultural Centre.   The hall will be situated between the museum/cultural centre building and the old Baptist church.   For the first time, it will have a full basement, plus many other upgrades, including new kitchen and washroom facilities.   The move is to take place later this year.

Staying cool and contented...

7th Concession & 15th Sideroad
Talk about making the best of what's given to you.   These cattle spent at least two hours milling about in this pond at the same time as rain showers were passing over this King farm on Sunday afternoon.   It's the full size-cattle that are in the pond, while calves are nestled in the pond-side grass.   I passed the scene twice while on the Nobleton/King City Garden Tour and the herd seemed entirely content.
