Hi Tracey,

That e-mail is a forward from Philippa. You may have met her and her brood at the park. She organizes most of the events that take place there including solstice celebrations and an easter egg hunt for the kids. I'm looking forward to the picnics this year too though as I"ve never been able to attend before.

Patti... Thursday night picnics at Hideaway sound fantastic! We are (new) regulars there, and I am looking forward to the pool opening. Thanks for the scoop on when that will be.

By the way, does anyone know of a good place in the city (preferably in the east end) for mom and baby swimming lessons? Thanks!

I missed the moms and dads in the park event too. Can I still join your mom's group? My son is 7 weeks old. I'll try and make it out tomorrow to the park.

Thanks Laura - I'll try to make it out in time tomorrow, nap permitting of course!

Hideaway Wading Pool Opening Date: June 27th, 2009 Close Date: Sept 6th, 2009

All dates are weather permitting.

The pool hours for Hideaway Park are: 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm Tuesday to Sunday. This should allow families and local residents who are working a chance to get to the pool and enjoy it during the summer time as I know this was an issue raised at the end of last year’s season.

I think that we should also kick start the pool season with a picnic. Last year's Thursday Night Picnics were a huge success and I think we should continue them, not sure what everyone's feelings are about doing it on opening day, it is a Saturday and the first of the school holidays so perhaps too many of you will have evacuated the city I don't know. What do you think?

If it's not Saturday 27th it will be the first Thursday evening of the summer holidays which is July 2nd from 5-7pm - remembering of course that food or drink cannot be taken into the actual pool - so there'll need to be some poolside vigilance this year with the later pool hours!

Hi Yishey,

We're going to be meeting every Tuesday at noon. This coming Tuesday we'll be at Leslie Grove Park at the corner of Queen and Jones. Come join us!

My daughter is 2.5 months. :)

Totally missed the Moms and Dads in the Park... bummer :(
Any groups I can join? I have a 3 month old boy... A-dorable!

Hideaway Park also has a wading pool that should be opening in June. It's a smaller park and is fully fenced in which is nice for those who have mobile babes that may want to join in the group.

Karen - My 7 week old has bright copper-red hair and pale white skin. I understand about the sun. I wonder.....part of the park has some nice big trees. Perhaps we should plan on using that end of the park.

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
