Lighting The Night Against Crime, and The Future of our Playgrounds

Posted on Updated on

Let There Be Light

The Light the Night is an initiative started by Toronto Hydro, Toronto Community Housing,  Community Response Program, and Toronto Police Service.  They canvass at-risk neighbourhoods replacing their porch lights with energy efficient light CFL bulbs.  Studies show that keeping an area well lit can reduce crime rates.  Light the Night aims to make Toronto safer one bulb at a time.

The Future of Play

Welcome to Neshama Playground, Toronto’s first fully accessible playground.  In Ontario, all facilities must be fully accessible to people of all levels of ability, and this playground is setting the example for what all city playgrounds may look like one day.
