There is a tiny building, perhaps washrooms, or for tools. It has been painted on all 4 sides. It is very adorable.

The parkette, which has lots of trees, grass, swings, a slide, monkey bars and a toddler wading pool is bordered by back alleys on 2 sides.

What a wonderful job the artists did painting all of the garages. It’s so happy and colorful. I hear the parents pooled their money to buy the paint, and the artists gave time. I’ll continue with the garages tomorrow.

I thought it said “Danger due to crayons” at first… not sure if “Randon” is an artist or ?

Welcome to Columbus Parkette

Columbus Parkette is small, urban & reclaimed from rummies & taggers.

One day, as I walked down an alley looking for new graf, 2 bicycle officers asked me, “What’s happening?

Artist: Uber 5000
Artist: Uber 5000

I told them I was scouting for new pieces of street art.

One officer’s face scowled, the other lit up and asked “Have you seen the kids park at the end of Sorauren?”.

I can’t take pics of the park, per se, because it’s full of kids, and guardians!

Nonetheless, I was quietly allowed to take shots of the artwork.

The parkette has Dundas St. W. along one side, and a convenience store running along another side

This is the convenience store wall, painted by Uber 5000.

 There is so, so much more, and I was very touched to see that some of our city’s most prominent Graf Artists had given their time to help reclaim this small piece of land for the youngest, and their families.

Wait until you see the rest of it!
