**UPDATE** We are going ahead with the event today (Monday July 24th) as planned. There is a small chance of rain but we will have tents, and the park has a large covered area next to the park's oven. See you there!

It’s now been over a year since the first Scattered Homes were transferred from TCHC to Circle, and we started meeting our Tenants. To celebrate, Circle is hosting a get-together at Fairmount Park (near Gerrard and Coxwell), where Tenants and Circle staff can meet each other, hang out, and enjoy some fresh pizza that will be baked in the park’s wood-burning oven, as well as other treats – all courtesy of Circle! All the details and the RSVP form are below. RSVPing is not required to attend – but it does help us plan. We hope to see you there!

More Information

We are excited to have a team of cooks who were trained as part of a Na Me Res Sagatay job training program making us fresh woodfired pizza in the park’s brick oven. Please consider bringing a pizza topping to share for fun - our cooks can add it to the pizza while they bake!

We know that our homes are spread out all over the City, but we’ve also heard that many Tenants are eager for opportunities to meet each other. So, we’ve chosen Fairmount Park as the site for our first event, since there are many Circle homes close by. Are you a Circle Tenant and want us to host a similar event closer to where you live? Let us know!

As always, a reminder that Covid-19 is still spreading in our communities. If you feel sick, or have been in recent contact with anyone who tested positive for Covid-19, please stay home to keep everyone safe.

TTC Directions – Important changes due to construction!

Due to road work, the nearby intersection of Gerrard and Coxwell will be closed to all traffic, which is disrupting a few TTC routes including the 22 Coxwell bus (which is not running), and the 506 Streetcar (which is being diverted). You can find the full updated TTC information at this link. The best options for getting to Fairmount Park by TTC are below:

  • If you are coming from the subway, take the 506C Replacement Bus from Castle Frank Station, Victoria Park Station, or from the bus stop at Coxwell and Danforth, and get off the bus at Gerrard St East and Beaton Avenue (which is at Fairmount Park)
  • If you are coming from St. Jamestown or Downtown, take the 506C Replacement Bus east. The bus will take a detour north on Greenwood up to Danforth, but then will travel back down Coxwell to rejoin its regular route. Get off the bus at Gerrard St East and Beaton Avenue (which is at Fairmount Park)
  • You can also take the 501 Queen Streetcar or bus east to Coxwell, and then walk north on Coxwell, then east on Gerrard until you reach Fairmount Park at Beaton Ave. The walk from Queen and Coxwell will take 15-30 minutes depending on your speed.
