Grand Opening Celebration of the new Mona Piper Playground

On Sunday, June 3rd, 2018 Councillor Josh Matlow invited the community to celebrate the grand opening of the Mona Piper Playground at the corner of Manor Rd. and Forman Ave., located beside Manor Road United Church.

The new playground was named in honour of Mona Piper, who was the longest serving crossing guard in the City of Toronto, and someone who helped kids cross safely for 43 years near Maurice Cody School. Mona Piper made our neighbourhood safer for our kids, and did it in a way that fostered a greater sense of community and spirit. Mona truly made a difference and we are happy to be able celebrate her remarkable contributions to our community.

Mona’s daughter Ann Piper shared a few words. View this short video of the dedication.
