BURDOCK ERADICATION: FOSS volunteers have been cutting invasive burdock in an attempt to control/eradicate this plant in order to encourage the growth of preferred native species.

2018 MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS: Check the FOSS blog as we get closer to the municipal election on October 22nd for responses from local candidates to questions posed by FOSS related to Col. Sam Park, e.g. off-leash dog situation, no washroom facilities (except during skating season), vandalism, etc.

DRUG/GARBAGE PROBLEMS AT COL. SAM: Discarded drug paraphernalia and litter are on-going detriments in the park, particularly in the North Creek area. Visitors are asked to notify the police at 416 808-2200 for drug infractions and 311 for trash build-up. Any problems reported to 311 are greatly strengthened when accompanied with a photo.

TWO-HOUR PARKING LIMIT ON SOUTH LOT AT COLONEL SAM: Vehicles are being marked and fines are being issued. 61 tickets issued at the beginning of the new college term.
