Green Streets Challenges 2019
The Green Street Challenge creates opportunities for residents in local communities to celebrate the importance of outdoor, unstructured play. For each event, sod is laid down on a prominent street in a participating community across Ontario, effectively creating a temporary park to be enjoyed.
The Green Street Challenges are made possible due to a partnership between Landscape Ontario members, the National Sod Growers Association (NSGA) members, and Come Alive Outside.
In 2019, Green Street Challenges will take place in the following communities:
