Map: Minoru Park

Thank you to everyone who came out! And special thanks to Victoria and Jonathan for assisting with control pick-up.

Join us this Wednesday for a Farsta at the newly reconstructed Minoru Park!

The map has been newly redrawn to reflect the changes made in the park around Minoru Lakes, Minoru Centre for Active Living, as well as adding new areas on the east side of the map to include some fun new residential areas that extends to Minoru Boulevard. Be prepared for some fun surprises!
