Christie Pits Park

This year, five of LEAF’s Young Urban Forest Leaders are working with the Friends of Christie Pits Park to develop an Adopt-a-Park-Tree program. The park currently has over 20 young trees and in the fall of 2016, 76 new trees will be planted by the City to replace the loss of many mature ash trees due to Emerald Ash Borer. 

The Friends of Christie Pits have been active for more than ten years, hosting community pizza nights, park clean ups, walking tours and many festivals and musical events.
