Wild Westboro Garage Sale, Sat. May 31, 8am-11am at Dovercourt – Book Your Table Today!

12 05 2014

Whether you are buying or selling, the annual Wild Wild Westboro Garage Sale is a fun time! See the poster for more details (pdf).

There are a few tables left….so act fast!

The garage sale takes place around the wading pool area at Dovercourt Recreation Centre, 411 Dovercourt Ave. Tables are available to rent for $10 from Dovercourt and can be booked online, in person at Dovercourt or by phone, 613-798-8950 ext. 0. (See the table map for table/ number reference).

We will also have the Morris Home Team bouncy house as an added attraction for the kids; proceeds to benefit the WCA.

This year we are encouraging members of the community to bring in used bikes to donate to RightBike. RightBike is a community owned-and-operated bike share service operating in the neighbourhoods of Westboro, Wellington West, and the Glebe. A Causeway Social Enterprise, RightBike is designed to support employment and economic development while encouraging sustainable transportation choices. Dovercourt is a RightBike hub during cycling season.

Please note there is no rain date. The garage sale will proceed in a light drizzle but if heavy rains are predicted the garage sale will be cancelled and refunds will be issued. We will update the website on Saturday morning to confirm the weather status. Table rentals will be refunded if it is rained out.

A big thank you to everyone who came out to help clean up Clare Garden Park on Saturday morning. It’s good to know there are so many caring people in our community.

Not only did you work magic with your rakes and shovels, but you also gave us some great ideas about how we can improve this lovely park. Some of these included:

  • fixing and widening the path (wouldn’t it be nice if two people could walk with strollers or ride their bikes side by side?)
  • updating the play structure
  • repairing the snow fence on the Athlone side of the park
  • replacing the signage along Clare Ave.
  • moving the swings to create a larger playing field
  • installing more benches to create a more social environment

Thanks again for your support and your participation! We really enjoyed meeting you all.

More will be posted on this topic soon.

The pit that was dug just west of the Westboro Exchange is finally sporting some signage. It’s going to be a luxury retirement residence.

Here’s a view of it from Maplelawn garden:
