Proclamation Of Portugal Day – Queen’s Park
47 Queens Park Crescent East, Toronto
Ground-breaking Ceremony of Pessoa Park – Peel Ave and Dufferin St
New Pessoa Park
405 Dufferin Street, Toronto
Please join me on Thursday June 8, 2017 at 6:30pm for the Pessoa Park Ground-breaking Ceremony at the site of the future park at the corner of Dufferin St and Peel Ave! “Pessoa” means person in Portuguese and Pessoa Park was named by the community earlier this year to celebrate the neighbourhood’s rich Portuguese heritage and the park’s role as a place for people to gather. Pessoa also happens to be the name of one of the most celebrated Portuguese Poets, Fernando Pessoa. The park will include a new public square with water jets, landscaped gardens, and a connection to the future extension of the West Toronto Railpath, cementing its role as an hub for our community.
I hope you can join me for this exciting event and I look forward to seeing you there!
Sincerely, Ana Bailão
