Deadline Date: January 26, 2019

Duration: 2 Days

Number of Positions: Multiple


Great opportunity for students interested in urban planning.

TASK: Conduct observational counts of how people are using David Crombie Park

TIME: A two-hour shift on Wednesday January 30th and/or Saturday February 2nd, 2019 (Back-up dates in case of inclement weather are Wed Feb 6 and/or Sat Feb 9, 2019). All new volunteers must arrive 30 minutes before the start of their shift to undergo training.

PLACE: David Crombie Park, along The Esplanade, between Lower Jarvis Street and Hahn Place.


David Crombie Park is a beloved linear park in the St. Lawrence neighbourhood. The park runs east-west along The Esplanade between Lower Jarvis Street and Hahn Place. The City of Toronto is embarking on a special opportunity to re-imagine and revitalize the park in order to better serve the area’s growing and changing population.

We’re looking for friendly volunteers to help collect “people data” to better understand how residents and visitors get around and spend time in David Crombie Park. The study will reveal what people like and dislike about the park, how they use it, and why.

This is the final of three public life studies. Questions about the public life study should be directed to: Rossana Tudo, Project Manager at 8 80 Cities at rtudo@880cities.org
