The St Lawrence Community Recreation Centre (CRC) at 230 The Esplanade is celebrating 30 years of service to the community this September!
Founding members of the St. Lawrence Neighbourhood Association were among the local residents who helped to make the St. Lawrence CRC a reality.
As part of this 30th Anniversary celebration, the Advisory Council for the St. Lawrence CRC is collecting written documents and photos that reflect the special memories of the many people who are or have used the Centre throughout the years. We hope to include your memories as well.
This collection of written and visual memorabilia will be displayed in the lobby of the Centre in the weeks leading up to the official celebration on Saturday, September 17th 2022 throughout the day (the Centre opens at 7:45 a.m. and closes at 7 p.m. on Saturday).

Over the last few months, the neighbourhood has experienced severe traffic challenges along The Esplanade as a result of drivers ignoring directional signage installed to facilitate roadway, pedestrian, and cycling safety.
Throughout this period the SLNA reached out to contacts in the City for immediate assistance in addressing these roadway and safety challenges.
We were pleased to hear from Sergeant Henry Dyck, Neighbourhood Community Office Supervisor - 51 Division, Toronto Police Services, that the police are now doing traffic enforcement on a daily basis at some point during the day (often at rush hour). In one day alone 26 tickets were written.
As the neighbourhood Association representing the interests of residents in the St. Lawrence, the SLNA is encouraged by this response but continues to push for the most effective enforcement approach given that school will be opening in a few weeks, and we continue to be concerned for the safety and well being of our most vulnerable residents.
Please see below the most recent letter sent by our President Stewart Linton to Mayor Tory on behalf of the SLNA Board of Directors:
We will keep SLNA members informed on steps taken to resolve this issue.
